Tristin Beck, 16, of Mountlake Terrace, Wash., was admitted to Seattle Children’s Hospital late last week, experiencing stomach pain and vomiting. On Sunday night, doctors performed exploratory surgery on his small intestine and found a problem no one expected, a wire from a grill brush. “We saw the glisten of metal off the light,” said Dr. Kimberly Riehle, a surgeon at Seattle Children’s.
