Teenage Girl’s Stomach Removed After Drinking Liquid Nitrogen Cocktail
Doctors in the U.K. have been forced to remove the stomach of an 18-year-old woman after she drank a cocktail containing liquid nitrogen.
Gaby Scanlon, from Heysham in Lancaster, was celebrating her 18th birthday at a bar last Thursday when she drank the cocktail.
She began to feel breathless and developed severe stomach pains before being brought to Lancaster Royal Infirmary at about 11pm where she was diagnosed with a perforated stomach.
Doctors were then forced to perform an emergency operation to remove her stomach in order to save her life.
Lancashire Police said the bar has now stopped selling the cocktail following last week’s incident, and that an investigation is underway.
