Mom rushes 3-year-old daughter to hospital after she eats Wendy's burger with glass inside

Dangerous bite into a Wendy's burger

A mom in Southgate, Michigan, was horrified when her 3-year-old daughter bit into a burger that had glass inside while dining at a Wendy's restaurant.

"She bit into her burger, we were inside, and she started to crunch this super loud crunch...that wasn't normal," mother Vanessa explained.

The two were eating there to celebrate a good dentist visit.

"You can't think of your baby and what could happen and the things you don't know could happen...your mind just starts to race," she continued.

"I was telling her don't swallow, don't swallow."

She then rushed to her daughter's aid and tried to get the glass out of her mouth. "As I was pulling her food out, I was pulling food out and blood out and I saw particles of glass on my fingers."

Vanessa then called the police and took her daughter to the hospital.

She said, "I hope to never go through anything like that again...think celebratory lunch at Wendy's wouldn't be such a nightmare."

According to the police report, the Wendy's manager said that there was broken glass in the back where food was being prepared.

10 money-saving fast-food hacks

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order two four-piece nuggets instead of one six-piece. It’s cheaper, you get more nuggets and you get more sauces. Score.

Hack: Order a McDouble without the ketchup and mustard but with lettuce and Big Mac sauce. You'll pay for the Big Mac taste for the price of a McDouble.

Restaurant: Chipotle

Hack: Order half of one protein and half of another kind (like chicken and steak). You’ll almost always get more than half of each and end up with up to 1.5x the protein in your burrito or bowl for the price of a normal portion.

Restaurant: Arby’s

Hack: Order two junior roast beef sandwiches instead of one regular classic. You'll end up with more meat for a lower price.

Restaurant: Jamba Juice

Hack: Substitute any ingredient in any smoothie for the same price. If you’re craving a smoothie with non-fat yogurt instead of mango, or extra strawberries instead of blueberries, customize it to your liking without any extra charge. It will save you more than being charged for creating your own smoothie from scratch.

Restaurant: Jack in the Box

Hack: Order two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and combine them into one for a much cheaper version of a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Restaurant: Any pizza place

Hack: When you call to order delivery, ask if there were any orders that weren’t delivered—the pizza place will often give you those orders for a discounted price (perfect if cold pizza is your thing.)

Restaurant: Subway

Hack: Order a Double Steak and Cheese Sub instead of the Philly Cheese Steak Sub—you’ll get the same sandwich at a normal foot-long price.

The Starboard Group, which owns the restaurant where this happened, told ABC:

"This is an extremely unfortunate accident and we quickly investigated, it appears a light bulb may have broken during maintenance activity in the restaurant."

Vanessa's daughter is now at home recovering. Wendy's says they will soon be in touch with her and her family about the incident.
