Approximately 95% of deaths from choking occur in the home environment.[Ref:1]
Mini magnets are usually swallowed (and thus they actually are not a true “choking” hazard). The problem is that if two or more mini-magnets are swallowed, they can make loops of intestine “stick” together, choking off the blood supply to the intestinal walls between the magnets, creating holes and a serious abdominal infection. This can also happen if only one mini magnet plus another piece of metal is swallowed.
