Doctors in Lancaster, UK, were forced to conduct an emergency operation and remove the stomach of an 18-year old girl who had drunk a cocktail made up of liquid nitrogen to celebrate her birthday.
Gaby Scanlan was visiting a pub called Oscar's in Lancaster to celebrate her 18th birthday. After drinking the cocktail, known as Pornstar Martini, she complained of breathlessness and severe stomach pain and was rushed to the Lancaster Royal Infirmary where she was diagnosed with perforated stomach and doctors performed emergency surgery to remove it in order to save her life.
Confirming the incident, a Lancashire police spokesman said that they were still conducting an investigation along with other agencies. "The investigation is still in its early stages and we are still interviewing witnesses to establish the full facts. The premises involved have fully co-operated with all agencies and have suspended drinks involving liquid nitrogen", he said.
