Foreign body aspiration or ingestion is common in young children. They may be asymptomatic and pass unnoticed if unwitnessed or may manifest with digestive, respiratory or behavioural problems. Some could be life threatening, therefore in unwitnessed cases, a high index of suspicion should be entertained when young children present with complains suggestive of its occurrence. Key words: Child, foreign body, ingestion, witness
