Woman Advised to Let AirPod Pass Naturally

After consulting with doctors and friends, Barker was advised to let the AirPod pass through her system naturally. AirPods are designed with an encapsulated battery so they can safely pass through the digestive tract without issue.

While swallowing an AirPod is extremely rare, Barkerโ€™s story serves as a cautionary reminder to be mindful when taking pills or supplements, especially while distracted. Thankfully for her, the embarrassing mishap ended well, providing many with some much-needed laughter and amusement.
