A young girl began squeaking like a dolphin after she accidentally swallowed a toy whistle. 

The six-year-old from Xi’an, in central China, was playing with the plastic toy when it became lodged in her windpipe.   

Video footage revealed how the swallowed whistle made the six-year-old squeak every time she breathed in and out, Shanghaiist reported. 

She was taken to hospital where doctors performed an X-ray to determine the precise location of the ingested toy. 

A team of surgeons then operated on the young girl to remove the whistle from her windpipe.
