I guess people will never learn from “A Christmas Story.”
A 12-year-old New Hampshire girl Maddie Gilmartin got her tongue stuck to a pole for 15 minutes after she licked the pole during a blizzard.
Her parents tried to pour hot water on her tongue to remove it from the pole but after that failed, the parents alerted 911.
The paramedics were able to safely remove her tongue from the pole. However, her tongue might be swollen for six-months!
