It’s been five years since a 19-year-old made national headlines after being admitted to the ER for a ruptured airway after a sexual misadventure with his well-endowed neighbor.
In 2018, Fredy Alanis shared his story on Snapchat with the caption, “Dick sent me to the ER.” Alanis later posted that Snapchat screenshot in a tweet that read: “Excuse the bad angle but remember when I sucked a Hulk-sized dick and ended up in the ER afterwards LMFAO never forget.” Alanis, who lived in Chicago at the time, explained that after the hookup he felt a “soreness in his chest” that eventually escalated to “the most ridiculous pain I’ve ever felt in my whole entire life”. “When I went to the doctor…I didn’t tell them exactly what happened because my mom drove me to the hospital.
I told my mom that the night before I was violently coughing. I had to pull something out of my ass really quick to cover it up,” he recalled.
At the hospital, the doctors that spoke to Alanis explained that “there was a rupture in my airway” and that “getting the airway ruptured through oral intercourse is one in millions.” It was eventually diagnosed as pneumomediastinum, a condition where loose air leaks into your chest cavity (in Alanis’ case caused by a tear in his airway).
