Claims that a 24 year old from Edmonton managed to get a fidget spinner stuck in her vagina come from fake news websites.
The story claims a woman from Edmonton in Canada used the latest craze – the fidget spinner – to “pleasure herself” only for it to become stuck in her vagina. The story later claims surgeons had to later remove the device.
An excerpt can be seen below.
A 24-year old woman from Edmonton in Canada’s Alberta Province has been rushed to hospital after a fidget spinner became stuck inside her vagina. Surgeons were forced to operate on the woman to remove the device, which had become stuck after she used it in an attempt to ‘pleasure herself’.
“We are confident the woman will make a full recovery, but for the moment she does face a fairly long recovery due to the internal damage the device made,” said one of the doctors who operated on the woman.
However the story comes from a website called WeekendHerald.com that appears to be a spoof website. Despite its claim they were founded in 1952 and shifted to the Internet in 2008, the website WeekendHerald.com was registered in late 2016.
Other stories that match this tale verbatim have also appeared elsewhere on the Internet on other websites owned by the same spammers. However other stories have changed the name of the woman’s locale to other cities and towns across the globe.
None of the stories appear to be true.
