Woman who mistook superglue for lip salve gives muffled call to emergency services

TO Dunedin, New Zealand, where a 64-year-old is calling the police.
Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken tells us.

Basically, she could only grunt. Ambulance received a call, but due to the muffled speech … they were unsure whether it was a medical event or whether someone had been gagged.”

What had happened to her?

“She got up in the middle of the night, in the dark, and grabbed what she thought was the tube of medication. It was an extremely frightening event for her because her breathing was impeded. I’ve heard of a few other things super-glued, but never lips. You wouldn’t have wanted to have had a blocked nose.” 

 Anorak wishes to cast no aspersions, but we remember the 1980s when glue-sniffing was  destroying society and blocked noses were common.
