Woman Mistakes Super Glue For Lip Balm

( 4UMF NEWS ) Woman Mistakes Super Glue For Lip Balm:

Suffer from dry lips in the night? Then maybe it's best not leave to super glue by your bedside.

A woman from New Zealand learned that lesson the hard way after mistakenly sealing her lips shut.

The 64-year-old, from Dunedin, reportedly woke in the dark 11 p.m. Thursday and grabbed what she thought was her medicine. Applying it to her lips, she soon realized it was in fact quick-drying adhesive.

Calling for an ambulance, her grunting over the phone led operators to think she was being held captive — so they sent police instead. But when cops arrived at her home, they found she was struggling to breathe after applying the wrong paste to her mouth.

"They were unsure whether it was a medical event or whether someone had been gagged," Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken told the Otago Daily Times.

The woman was taken to hospital, treated and released.
