A woman sneezed out a ring which had been stuck up her nose for 12 years. The stunned woman only noticed when she saw something glistening in her snot after a sneezing fit.
Abigail Thompson had no idea the piece of jewellery, a gift for her eighth birthday, was up her nose the whole time.
The 20-year-old said she noticed it had gone missing a few months later and assumed someone had taken it.
She said: “I never ever in a million years would have guessed it had got stuck up my nose.”
“I always had a few friends over, we always would sit on my bed and she thought one of them must have just taken it when they were over at my house. “Mum thought one of them must have stolen it. “There was no other explanation as to where it could have gone.”
Abigail, of Keighley, West Yorks in England, said she was shocked when she saw the silver ring fly out of her conk after a particularly bad sneezing fit.
After speaking with her mum, Abigail came to the conclusion that the ring must have got stuck up there when her younger self picked her nose.
Having been hidden away for more than a decade the ring is still in decent condition.
