This is what happens when you swallow a toy horn – you stop talking and start squeaking instead.
Hilarious footage shows a boy of no more than 10 years old squeaking after swallowing part of the children’s toy horn by accident.
The clip was uploaded by Santiago Gomez Zuviria last week in Tucumán, north west Argentina.
In a matter of days the clip has gone viral, with nine million views worldwide.
The caption, posted on Mr Zuviria’s Facebook, reads: ‘Taken in Tucumán. Moral of the story: be careful with what you let your children play with.’
Pictures posted with the story show the youngster with a woman, presumably his mother, looking worried in hospital.
But another reveals the tiny contraption that is making him honk like a horn after he had it surgically removed by doctors.
Those commenting on Facebook could not contain their laughter, posting hundreds of comments.
But it appears Mr Zuviria was not happy with some of the less compassionate responses.
He posted a status on his Facebook a few days later saying: ‘I want to ask your help.
A few days ago I shared a video of a little boy who had an accident with a toy horn.
My only intention was to make friends aware of the risk that small children are exposed to when playing with toys.
‘To date, the video has almost nine million views, a number that continues to rise.
‘Unfortunately there are those who have used the video maliciously, so I’m asking all my friends and contacts to report these posts, extracted from the video in question, that seek to ridicule the situation the little guy went through.
‘Let us make this online community a healthy and respectful place for all.
‘Thank you very much.’
The schoolboy is believed to have made a full recovery, but it is not known how long he was squeaking for.

At the age of 12, Patrick Mitchell began a two-year journey to realise his dream of becoming a girl. And then he changed his mind.
Patrick Mitchell just wanted to change everything about himself.
Uncomfortable in his own skin, the young schoolboy felt like he didn’t quite fit.
He was just seven years old when he felt like he first heard the phrase “trans”.
It was the start of an emotional journey which, five years later, would see him diagnosed with gender dysphoria, and beg his mother to let him transition into a girl.
“You wish you could just change everything about you, you just see any girl and you say ‘I’d kill to be like that’,” Patrick tells reporter Ross Coulthart in an interview to air on 60 Minutes on Sunday night.
But two years after taking oestrogen hormones and growing his hair long in an effort to address the condition which put him at odds between his biological gender and his own identity, Patrick has changed his mind.
He’s stopped taking the oestrogen hormones which transformed his body and is preparing for surgery to remove the excess breast tissue to transition back into a boy, Woman’s Day reports.
Patrick was just 12 when he first voiced his mental torture to his family.
It had been five years since he’d first heard the word ‘trans’, he says “and because I’d always identified with girls thought, well, this makes sense, I probably am a girl”.
As his conflict grew — both internally, and externally thanks to hitting puberty and being bullied at school — he’d stay up late at night researching trans people and what could be done to look more like a female.
“It was so hard to wake up every morning and see something new on my body, or that I’d grown. It was so depressing — I hated looking in the mirror. I didn’t know who the person staring back at me was.”
His mother, Alison, tells 60 Minutes she could see her son struggling.
Finally, having seen a television story about transgender people, she gently broached the subject with her son.
“I hadn’t even finished the sentence and he had the biggest smile on his face. I hadn’t seen him smile for months,” she said.
With a doctor’s diagnosis, she gave the go-ahead for Patrick to begin his transformation.
“When he was young he would dress up in girls’ clothes and at one stage he did say to me could he be taken to the doctor to be made into a girl,” she said.
But at the start of this year, when teachers started referring to him as a girl, Patrick started feeling different.
“I began to realise I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he says.
He again turned to his supportive mum.
“He looked me in the eye and said ‘I’m just not sure that I am a girl’,” Alison says.
It was a massive twist in an emotional journey, and Alison has only admiration for her son.
“That moment … when you know it’s taken every drop of courage for that child to speak up … I didn’t know what the coming days would bring, but I knew his thoughts had caught up with his body,” she says.

A 14-year-old boy has been arrested after a video of him dancing the Macarena on a busy street in Jeddah was posted online and went viral. His insouciant dance moves apparently didn’t please Saudi authorities, who described them as “improper public behaviour.”

In the 45-second video, posted on Saturday Aug. 19, the boy casually walks crosses a road wearing headphones, before stopping in the middle and turning to face a row of cars who have stopped at the red light. He gives one last grin at the camera, and then calmly starts to dance the Macarena, a popular Spanish hit from the 1990s with internationally recognisable dance moves. The Macarena dance moves soon transform into his own brand of relaxed freestyle. The camera pans in on his gyrating hips before the video ends.

Authorities from the region of Mecca, where Jeddah is, announced on Twitter on Tuesday, August 22 that the boy had been arrested and would be going to court. The boy has not been identified, and the date of his dance antics is also unknown. As he is a minor, it is uncertain whether the public prosecutor will actually charge him.


The video has been widely shared on Twitter and Facebook, with a tweet by journalist Ahmed Al Omran gaining over 2,000 retweets. The video divided social media in the country.

Criminals on the dance floor

This is not the first time some well-timed choreography has roused the ire of Saudi authorities. Only a few weeks ago, Saudi singer Abdallah Al Shahani was arrested after “dabbing” during a music festival on August 5 in the city of Taif in the country’s southwest.

The “dab” is a gesture made popular by celebrities and sporting stars, and involves putting one’s face into the crook of the elbow, while pointing the other arm towards the sky. The video of Al Shahani’s dab went viral on Saudi social media and led to his arrest.

Dabbing is illegal in Saudi Arabia, on the grounds that it encourages drug use and is a veiled reference to marijuana.

This is why you can’t dab in Saudi Arabia

At a little over 2m eight-year-old schoolboy – thought to be the tallest person of his age in the world – has said he hopes to make his parents proud by growing even bigger.
Karan Singh was already over 60cm tall and one stone in weight when he was born, a world record, but now stands shoulder to shoulder with former world champion boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
The young giant, from Meerut in India, takes after his 33-year-old mother Shweatlana – a 219cm basketball player and India’s tallest woman.
His naturopath dad Sanjay, 41, is also enormous – but now just fractionally taller than his rapidly sprouting son. Karan’s biggest problem has been finding clothes and footwear that fit him – he wears size 12 shoes and was wearing clothes for a 10-year-old when he was three.

A 23-year-old Roma from the area of Menidi was arrested as the main suspect for the death of an 11-year-old student, who suffered a fatal head wound from a stray bullet while attending a school celebration last Thursday. The suspect, who is has a police record of involvement in thefts and drug dealing, admitted he was shooting in the air on Thursday claiming he was celebrating his mother’s release from police custody. The 23-year-old man said he was firing his carbine, while police found bullet cases from a 9mm pistol at his house. Police failed to find either weapons after searching his house and the Roma was unable to justify how the bullet cases were at his house. Fifty police officers are continuing to scour the wider area of Menidi, near the 6th primary school where the death of 11-year-old Marios happened. Settlements around the area of Menidi are inhabited by Roma, some of who are involved in illicit activities.

A 10-year-old boy was lost his life during a school celebration. The pupil was outside with his friends when he suddenly fell down hitting his head hard on the ground.

Everybody thought he had fainted. However, the boy didn’t make it and died later on in the hospital at 11:30′.

But what left everyone in shock was that the coroner found a bullet in his skull!

Apparently, according to the available information so far, there was some celebration in a Roma camp near by at, and someone fired shots in the air and one of the bullets as it was falling down hit the boy.

The coroner explained that the doctors probably didn’t see the wound because it was under the boy’s hair and was also already clinically dead at the time of his arrival.

The police is investigating the case, and they already seem to have some information regarding the house from where the shots were fired.

Watching a person twist and bend their body in all possible ways imaginable is something that always attracts the attention of everyday folk. The feats contortionists can sometimes achieve are truly mind-boggling. It is not a rarity to see Hindu gurus sitting hours upon hours in unnatural positions that seem unattainable. Not surprisingly, the young man who has stunned locals comes from India. Yash Shah, 18, from Surat can rotate his hands and legs 360 degrees, and can spin his neck 180 degrees around! He can also dislocate his arms and legs, and squeeze his body through a tennis racket. Yash is now dreaming of fame and earning a Guinness World Record.

A 12 year old German-Iraqi boy was detained by police for planting two bombs in Germany, making him the youngest person accused of terror related crimes in Europe to date.
Focus Magazine reported on Friday that first incident occurred when the boy placed a bomb at the Christmas Market in Ludwigshafen on November 26. The boy placed a backpack near the market containing a homemade bomb  composed of gunpowder surrounded with nails and screws. The bomb failed to go off. He made another attempt on December 5, placing a similar bomb near the city hall. A passer-by reported the suspicious object to police and the bomb-squad set off a controlled explosion, destroying the bomb. The boy was taken in by police on the same day.
The 12-year-old, born in the town in Rhineland-Palatinate in 2004, had been radicalized and was encouraged to carry out the attack by an as-yet unknown member of the Isis terror group, Focus reported on Thursday, citing security sources. .Because the boy is under 13 he cannot be tried for a crime. Instead youth workers have been assigned to care for him.
Federal prosecutors are however investigating the possibility that a terror network supported the attempted attack.

In an ironic twist, the announcement came two days after a story in Reuters with the headline, “Refugees bring a taste of Syria to German Christmas market”.
