WOMAN BREAKS JAW ON BURGER!
A WOMAN bit off more than she could chew at a burger bar when she was left nursing a dislocated jaw.
Nicola Peate, 25, had to have her jaw moved back into place by medics after it locked while she tried to get her teeth around a “triple-patty” burger at a Liverpool restaurant.
The social media manager initially tried to laugh it off when the incident happened during a work night out at the Almost Famous diner.
After her fiance, Neil Docking, finished the remainder of the ‘Kids in America Burger’, containing pretzels and candied bacon, the pair made their way home oblivious to the seriousness of the injury.
But by the time Nicola, from Ormskirk, Lancs, went to work the next day the pain had become unbearable.
She said: “I didn’t think that I’d dislocated it – you don’t expect it to happen eating a burger!
“But I tried to eat it with a knife and fork and couldn’t. I couldn’t open my mouth fully. It felt like I had cramp in my tongue, then I started to get an earache and a headache.
“The next morning the whole side of my head was hurting. Then it started to feel like it was in my jaw.”
