His doctor found the spoon after looking into his lungs with an endoscope, a medical instrument with a long, thin tube containing a light and a video camera.

"He explained that there was an object down there, and it had writing on it," Manley said. "It spelled out 'Wendy's' on one side and 'hamburgers' on the other, and I was a little floored."

Only in Wilmington... no, I don't know the guy...

How does that happen? Honestly, how do you inhale something like that?

Even if it was hidden in his food, would food particles have gone in with it and caused a massive infection?
