 文字稿//The Woman Who Swallowed a Toothbrush

 Be careful! Don't swallow your toothbrush!
不要吞掉你的牙刷!

What? You can't swallow a toothbrush!

Well, one woman in Pingtung did!
屏東有一位婦人吞了一支牙刷!

The doctors at the hospital were very surprised. They said they never heard
of someone swallowing a toothbrush before.
醫生從來沒聽過有人吞下牙刷。

She told the doctors, "Oh… I was super tired when I woke up and when I was
brushing my teeth… I swallowed my toothbrush! It was an accident!"
那名婦女說,她刷牙的時候太累了,不小心把牙刷吞進肚子裡。

The doctors asked the woman the same question two or three times:
"Toothbrush? Did you say toothbrush? You swallowed a toothbrush?"

Then the doctors took an X-ray. And… yep! They saw the toothbrush inside the
woman.
醫生問了好幾次確認,後來照 X 光,發現牙刷果真在她肚子裡。

They helped her and took the toothbrush out of her body.
他們幫婦人把牙刷拿出來。

The woman was very happy and said swallowing a toothbrush is no fun! It hurt
a lot!

It's important to remember to brush your teeth… but we should be careful! We
shouldn't run or play when we are holding a toothbrush… because we might
fall and get hurt.
刷牙的時候不要跑跳或玩耍,因為可能會跌倒而受傷。

And… if you feel really tired in the morning… maybe splash some water on
your face and wake up a bit before you brush your teeth!
