BASINGSTOKE, England, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- A British teenager appeared to have an insect bite on her neck but doctors found the real problem -- a 2-inch sewing needle lodged in her throat.

Abbey Walsh, 16, went to North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke, England, with a pain in her neck and doctors told her the red mark was an insect bite, The Mirror reported Monday.

She is a sharp student, but she was stuck when she passed out...
