One Direction is a popular boy band, especially among children and teenagers. The band now consists of four singers—Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson.
A new report published by Live Science at the beginning of October 2017 reveals a fairly odd case that happened a few years ago at a One Direction concert. When one teen fan was having the time of her life at the concert, screaming and “fangirling” out, she rushed to the hospital shortly after the event.
According to the newly released report, she screamed so “forcefully,” which caused a shortage of breath and irregular breathing patterns. The girl was only 16 years old at the time of the incident.
Doctors reported that she came in the day after the One Direction concert because her breathing did not return to normal. They discovered that she had a collapsed lung by somehow allowing air to enter certain parts of the body that aren’t meant to be filled with air.
One spokesperson revealed, “When [doctors] pressed down on the skin around the girl's chest and neck, it felt like they were crushing Rice Krispies beneath their fingers,” medically known as “subcutaneous crepitus.”
According to BBC, this type of case has “never been seen before.”
During a CAT scan, doctors were unable to determine how exactly the air escaped into other sections. It was possible that a tear occurred somewhere in the respiratory system or the incident was a result of her Type 1 diabetes, which reportedly poses a risk of air escaping into other areas.
Additional testing revealed that she, fortunately, did not have a serious condition. She was treated with oxygen and, additionally, stayed in the hospital overnight, making a full recovery.
The Huffington Post spoke with one medical professional, ensuring that parents should not be too worried about their children getting overly excited at concerts. The One Direction fan's case was described as “extremely rare.”
