Boy Nearly Strangles Himself With McDonald’s Toy

Parents, it’s always a good idea to watch for toys that your child can swallow, or which they can put around their necks. There was a recent incident involving a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy. See below.


The AP (7/26) reported, “Federal consumer safety officials are investigating a complaint that a 4-year-old Connecticut boy nearly strangled himself with a toy from a McDonald’s Happy Meal. Connecticut consumer protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell Jr. said Monday that the boy from the New London area put the ‘Last Airbender Katara’ bracelet-like toy around his neck June 30 and began to lose consciousness,” though “his mother removed it before any serious harm was done.” The CPSC “is investigating.”
