Man ruptures throat holding nose in a sneeze

A 'fit and well' man's attempt to contain a sneeze put him in hospital for a week after he ruptured his throat.

The 34-year-old unnamed man found himself unable to swallow or speak when he held his nose as he sneezed, causing a spontaneous perforation of the pharynx.

It's an unusual condition that occurs after trauma such as vomiting or heavy coughing.

A good sneeze is one of life's simple pleasures!  I'm thinking that this guy won't be doing THAT again.

I do the same thing if sneezing in a crowd.  Well I don't hold my nose but I suppress it.  I'll have to rethink that.

Thinking about it, that look a lot like a diving accident when you have a decompression problem because you are keeping the air in the lung going up, the air go trough the long and make bubble around it. Over pressure problem...
