I came across this article which I must definitely share with you guys. For your convenience, I have copied the excerpts from the article here:

This is the time-stopping moment where doctors save the life of a baby - who was suffocating after swallowing a watch. (click image below to launch video on YouTube)

Moment doctor rescues baby who swallowed a watch

The baby boy was rushed to hospital struggling to breathe after the silver time piece became stuck in his throat. He had already started turning blue when medics in Saudi Arabia worked to free the lodged piece of metal.

The 20-second clip shows the doctor using a pair of surgical scissors to loosen the object before scraping it out of his throat with his fingers. Seemingly shocked at what has happened, the baby is initially silent but then coughs to clear his airways. He then shows there is no lasting damage to his lungs when he starts to cry loudly. Medics can be seen patting him on the back repeatedly to encourage his breathing.

His parents rushed him to the unknown hospital after spotting the youngster struggling to breathe and realising that he had swallowed the watch, which they were unable to remove. By the time he arrived, he was already in critical condition and the doctor’s speedy reactions undoubtedly saved his life.
