A 16-year-old boy who had aspirated a straw came to the Emergency Ward. The only symptom was a soft whistling sound while breathing. The straw was found in the right middle lobar bronchus and was removed by flexible bronchoscope and forceps. Prompt removal of foreign bodies from the airways, preferably by flexible bronchoscopy, is necessary to avoid complications.
