Help Me! I Can’t Shut My Mouth! – Bizarre ER – BBC Three

First, we’re heading to Northampton General,
where slack-jawed student, Holly Thompson has arrived at A&E, completely unable to close
her gaping gob. As Holly can’t really talk right now, probably
best we tell you how she got here. Holly was at college, enjoying a particularly
riveting lesson of government and politics. Uninspired by the political ponderings, Holly
opened wide for a yawn. Her massive mouth manoeuvre caused her jaw
to dislocate, leaving her unable to close her cake-hole. Literally speechless, Holly frantically nudged
her classmate. Try as she might, she couldn’t help Holly
shut her mouth, and the pair had no choice but to interrupt the lesson. After a quick visit to the school nurse, who
also failed to help our heroine. It was decided that Holly and her jangling
jaw should head to A&E. My names Ejiro, I’m one of the doctors. Obviously I can see your mouth’s stopping
open. Has this happened to you before? No, I… Sorry? So it has happened before? Yeah like- kind of. Ok. Holly’s floppy chops might look funny, but
they’re no laughing matter. It can be quite serious, because you can’t
eat, you can’t really drink, and you get dehydrated. But, again it’s quite painful as well. Fortunately, Dr. Ejiro has a plan that draws
on the latest, cutting-edge technology. She’s going to stuff Holly’s mouth with small
splints, that look a bit like lolly sticks. It might seem bizarre, but there’s method
in the madness. I don’t want it to hurt. By keeping Holly’s mouth wedged open with
wood, the jaw muscles will get tired, unlock, and allow the doctor to click her laughing
gear back into place. Feels fine? Feels funny? Yeah. It usually does. Actually, I can get one more in. That’s a jaw-dropping 26 little lolly sticks
holding Holly’s mouth open. All Holly has to do now, is wait for the wooden
sticks to work their magic. Time to see if jamming Holly full of lolly’s
has done the job. There’s only two rules for this, one is that
you relax and two is that you don’t bite me. That’s it. As Dr. Ejiro manoeuvres the mouth, there’s
a chance Holly’s nashers will clamp down hard on her hand. The doctor’s digits are safe, and Holly’s
jaw is back where it should be. Was it painful? No. It just aches a bit. It will do, because it’s been out of joint
for a little while. I would avoid yawning too wide, anything like
that because it’s a bit unstable at the moment. Now that Holly can close her cake-hole, it’s
time to head home and she’s even got a souvenir of splints for the mantle. Honestly, the things people will do to get
out of double politics.
