Woman accidentally ‘super glues’ lips together

docA 64-year-old lady found herself in a sticky position in the middle of the night when she accidently bonded her lips together after mistaking ultra strong super glue for cold sore cream.

 

Speaking to New Zealand’s 3 News, she said: “I have all my ointments in a tray in the cupboard, so I got out of bed and I dived into the tray. I couldn’t smell it because I was blocked up. And then I got into bed and thought, ‘what have I put on my mouth?'”

 

Emergency services were concerned for the woman’s welfare after receiving a muffled call from her.

 

Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken told the Otago Daily Times newspaper: “[The] 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.

 

”Basically, she could only grunt. She got up in the middle of the night, in the dark, and grabbed what she thought was the tube of medication.”

 

The unnamed lady was admitted to hospital to receive urgent treatment, and is now believed to have been discharged.
