Unhappy Drinking Bubble Tea = !!!!!

Well... I just caught the Chinese news on TV right now...

A girl in Taiwan while drinking BBT on a bus sufficated and died...

It was her B-day too... the doctors said a pearl was found clogging her throat... this girl also had asthma, but they don't know if there's any relation of that to her death...

Man... I donno about you, but that scared me a bit since I drink BBT at least once a week or so...

I never thought something so harmless like bbt and those "jelly cups" can be so fatal. It's the simplest and tiniest things in this world... sigh..

well I heard a similar case but there no death involved though,
its also a girl who drank it and choked on it. But she was saved

A "pearl", can be big or small.... based on how the maker do it. chewy are pretty medium sized, if its hard then its pretty big for a pearl.

I almost choked on one of them pearls too a lesson learned and thats why I stopped drinking bbt with pearls but just the drink itself

That's so sad.

What's sadder is almost anyone could save a choking victim if they just took a few minutes to educate themselves on the heimlich manoeuvre.

Choking deaths are more common than people think. Knowing what to do in a choking situation could mean life or death of a family member.

I got a friend that's really peeved that they banned those little jelly cups in Canada after an infant choked on them. Sure, that was sad, but that was really a freak occurence.

It's like trying to ban pretzels after what happened to George W. Bush.
