Steve Easton had a blocked nose for 44 years until a sneezing fit blew out a dart!

Easton, 51, has suffered from a blocked nose for more than 40 years before he blew out part of a rubber toy dart in a sneezing fit. 

Previously blaming the uncomfort on hay fever or headaches, Easton had “a sneezing git and it came out of [his] left nostril” he told Mirror UK

“I thought, ‘What’s this? Where the hell has this come from?’ and pulled out this rubber sucker. I was completely blown away.

“When I spoke to my mum, she said, ‘Oh yes, we took you to hospital when you were seven because we thought you had inhaled one’.”

Turns out, when Easton was seven his parents had rushed him to the hospital when they noticed a dart without it’s tip, fearing he had swallowed it. 

However the hospital staff assumed it was a mistake and said they couldn’t find anything! 


It was in March this year that Steve had the sneezing fit and the tip fired out of his nose.

“I mentioned it to my doctor and he was amazed like everybody else. But he said there had been no harm done — it’s just one of those things,” he said.

“It had been there in my nasal cavity for 44 years. I was completely unaware that it was in my nose for that long. I feel no different now.
