Ido Shloman, 5, arrived at Assuta Hospital in Ashdod in the morning (Wednesday) with his mother after allegedly swallowing a half-shekel coin and suffering from swallowing difficulties, incessant vomiting and weakness.

The boy was taken to the operating room, where the coin was successfully taken out by Dr. Yehuda Schwartz and Dr. Ibrahim Said. At the end of the operation, the child was transferred for further treatment and supervision in the pediatric ward of the hospital.
