A baby girl has been rushed to hospital after swallowing a small button battery.
The 10-month-old was taken from a Brisbane bayside home to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital on Tuesday afternoon, paramedics confirmed.
The incident comes just weeks after a Queensland coroner ruled all button batteries should be plastic coated after four-year-old Summer Steer from the Sunshine Coast died after swallowing a lithium battery in 2013.
