A panicked Carli Bellmer took to TikTok to share an odd dilemma: she swallowed an AirPod after mistaking it for a painkiller tablet.
"So like, I ate my f**king left AirPod," the visibly upset TikToker told her followers. "I was crawling into bed and I had an ibuprofen 800 in one hand and my f**king AirPod—my left earbud—in the other."
Bellmer mindlessly popped in what she thought was the pill and tried puking it up when she realized she swallowed the wrong thing.
She tried the "Find my AirPod" feature on her phone and faintly heard the ringing sound from her stomach.
The 27-year-old couldn't upchuck the earbud and had an x-ray to confirm that no damage had been done to her insides. It also revealed that she had already passed the piece of tech—she didn't try getting it back, though.
While the AirPod was in Bellmer's system, she was able to record a voice memo capturing audio from her stomach.

Her TikTok comments section was flooded with people asking her how she could mix up an earbud with a painkiller. While there were others that defended her, Bellmer also showed how big the Ibuprofen 800 tablet was in comparison to the AirPod.
As of writing, Bellmer's TikTok has over 2.8 million views.
