 Teen Undergoes Emergency Surgery to Remove Stomach After Drinking Liquid Nitrogen Cocktail

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.

The premises involved have fully co-operated with all agencies and have suspended drinks involving liquid nitrogen", he said.
