A metro Detroit mother is warning parents about the popular fidget spinners after her 3-year-old son swallowed a piece of the spinner this week.

Alissa Crawford says her son, Khale Crawford, went up to her and said his tummy hurt on Wednesday. He then told her he swallowed a part of the fidget spinner toy.

Alissa took Khale to the hospital where he had an x-ray and thankfully would not need surgery.

According to Alissa, the toys were a gift from the boys' grandmother, and she immediately threw them both away.

This comes just one day after a Texas girl choked on a part of a fidget spinner.
