LAKEWOOD, Wash. — A barbecue changed one Washington woman’s life.
According to Q13Fox, Tammy Johnson decided to have the cookout with her husband and their grandchild.
A few days later, she experienced severe abdominal pain and thought she got sick from the chicken they had eaten.
But doctors discovered she’d also eaten a wire from a brush used to clean the grill, and it punctured her intestine.
She had emergency surgery and nearly died.
Tammy is still on a feeding tube and is warning people about the dangers of using the grill brushes.
