My Intestines Got Sucked Out In A Swimming Pool | TRULY

Salma: I’m basically in pain 24/7. Salma: I had an accident happen at a swimming pool. Salma: It was so traumatic. Salma: My mom actually thought it was
like my bathing suit or something. Salma: There was a doctor there and
he’s like, “Those are intestines.” Salma: It was horrible. Salma: Yeah Ray and Jay – Ray and Jay are coming. Mother: She will stay here? Salma: Not a sleepover, no. Mother: Just short visit today? Salma: Yeah, we are going to see each other and stuff. Mother: Okay. Salma: My name is Salma and I am 16 years old. Salma: I live in Pittsburgh. Salma: With my mom and my two brothers. Mother: Salma, she’s amazing girl in the whole world. Mother: Salma, she’s a fighter. She is a miracle. Salma: Yeah, having it for 10 years. Salma: All the nutrition I get is my TPN, so I don’t technically need to eat. Salma: TPN is Total Parental Nutrition. Salma: It is a bag full of fluids. Salma: It has all the nutrition you
need to survive basically. Salma: But yet somehow, I get the
sensation that I’m hungry. Salma: Maybe it’s a brain thing, maybe
it’s a mind thing, I have no idea. Salma: So I still get the taste of the food. Salma: Honestly, I don’t even remember
what it’s like to swallow the food. Salma: I mean it would be awesome
to, you know, swallow the food again. Salma: I can’t really do much
whenever I’m hooked up. Salma: Because I have to carry
it around in a backpack. Salma: Especially when it’s first
hooked up, it’s so heavy. Salma: I need to stay hooked up to
the TPN for 20 hours a day. Mother: When she was five years old, she had a tragic accident. Mother: It was vacation. Mother: We have an apartment in Alexandria and Egypt. Mother: That day, she went to the swimming pool. Mother: I asked her to please stay in front of me. Mother: Please, she is like “No, no,
no mom it’s for kids.” Mother: “It’s very little for babies.
I’m going. I’m going”. Mother: She went one time and she came back. Mother: She went another time. Mother: The third time she went and she didn’t come back. Salma: You know, if you actually
let me go somewhere. Salma: Which you probably will never let me go anywhere. Mother: That’s Salma. Salma: Controlling mother. Salma: There was a suction in it. Salma: It was actually pulling. Salma: So I was just swimming and all of a sudden, like I just sat on it by accident. Salma: I know the lifeguard tried to pull me out and he couldn’t, because the suction was so much. Salma: I could see what was going
on but I couldn’t even breathe. Salma: I could remember the pain.
I remember everybody panicking. Salma: Everybody getting out of the pool. Salma: I know a couple people finally
were able to get me out. Mother: I stand up and ran to her. Mother: I found someone carrying her and all her, like intestines, came out from her body. Mother: I couldn’t believe this is intestines. Mother: I thought at the beginning, I
thought it’s hair swimming through. Mother: Literally like my whole
stomach was just – it was horrible. Mother: But the good thing is it was so bad that I
basically blacked out after a little while. Salma: I think I was in the
hospital for maybe like two months. Salma: That was back in Egypt. Salma: Okay I’m in, I’m in. Salma: It is so cold. Salma: They said that I have
about two weeks to live, if I don’t get this transplant. Salma: And they told us that Pittsburgh
is the best place to go. Mother: Egypt – we don’t have
any treatment for Salma right now. Mother: We don’t – even her TPN, we don’t have it in Egypt. Mother: We have to come to America.
To do a transplant. Salma: Since we’re not citizens,
we can’t have insurance. Salma: And we were on the transplant
waiting list for 18 months. Salma: And then I did receive my
small intestinal transplant. Salma: After two weeks of me receiving my
transplant, I had my first rejection. Salma: After another month or so, another one. I had
a total of about five or six rejections. Salma: And it was so bad that they opened me up to remove that one organ which was only small intestines. Salma: And they found out that
the rejection had spread. Salma: So they actually had to remove my small
intestines which I got transplanted. Salma: And my large intestines. Salma: My bladder was ruptured in the process. Salma: And yeah, whenever they took everything
out since the infection was so bad, they unfortunately could not close me back up. Salma: So it’s healing slowly. Salma: But, now it’s literally – it’s
not healing any more. Salma: They removed my transplant, they said that we couldn’t have another one. Last time was just one organ. Salma: This is five organs. Salma: They also – money,
need money for admissions. Salma: Money for complications, for home care, pre-op evaluation. Salma: They need the money for everything. Mother: Here, everything is like cost. Mother: Everything’s cost. Mother: Every admission, every visit,
every clinic, every labs. Mother: Only, her lab is like a thousand
dollars every week. Mother: She still smiles. Mother: She is still a fighter. Mother: She’s still challenged with her
situation. She’s doing very, very good things for her. Salma: My two friends – their
names are JC and Reagan. Salma: Basically we met at transplant camp. Salma: Honestly, since camp we
have not stopped talking. Salma: We just understand each other so much because, JC actually had a small intestine transplant and it failed. Salma: And then she got a multi-visceral transplant
which is the same thing I need right now. Salma: Hey. Salma: Hey Zeda. Salma: Hi guys. Salma: Dude, we always have
300 people watching you. Girl: 90 Salma: I build my viewers up and I work for it. Mother: This is the dream to
give her – like give her another chance. Mother: Like her friend and she’s good now. Mother: And when she saw her, she gets hope. Mother: She says I wish, Mother: I wish I can get another one
and I live like normal. Mother: I said, just make pray. We keep praying. Mother: It’s impossible. Salma: But, we shall be
back after I’m done filming. Salma: So I love you guys. Peace out. Ray and Jay : Bye. Salma: Bye. Mother: Makeup artist. Mother: She’s good. She’s good. Mother: She’s good, but she’s mad at me,
because I refused to do makeup. Mother: She want to do my makeup. I said
no, I don’t like makeup. Salma: I love doing my
eyes, like eye shadow. Salma: I barely do neutral looks. I always do
crazy bold colors, which I love that. Salma: I have a makeup page that I do lives on. And I just like to go and do my makeup for fun. Salma: That’s what I love to do for fun. Mother: I’m trying to help her. I’m trying to do anything to make her stay alive and feel she’s a normal person. Mother: I wish I can do her dream and make her wish to do another transplant.

  • All be fine until god with us

  • She looks so young and she talks so smart!!

  • isn’t that like what happened in that one final destination movie lmao

  • not trying to be mean in anyway but why does she look so young? does i have something to do with this?

  • She doesn't look 16 just saying but she is kind and brave thats what matters

  • So basically she may never have a successful procedure…. Mind you she said it failed 5 times smh. So technically she may just end up dying young. Hell when she had one it ended up messing the others up……..really nothing can be done because its a high chance that 3 million will go to waste and the procedure will fail. That's absolutely sad….Wow

  • Remember to donate if you can…they aren't going to reach the goal without some help from everyone

  • what if you accidentally swallow a food ?? where does it go?

  • just like final destination :O


  • What happens if she swallows the food?

  • Aw sweet baby you're so beautiful and so brave. I hope you get everything you need and more.

  • Are u a Muslim cos your mom is wearing a hijab

  • Oh my God u went to Egypt

  • Admirable su fuerza💓

  • I thought Mack was lying.

  • She so beautiful

  • I feel sorry for how much debt there in.

  • If every viewer donated just $1 she would have more then enough money for the transplants

  • I hope that pool got shut down 😤

  • Ellen DeGeneres should donate 3 million to this girl.

  • Americans charge way too much money for health care

  • Poor girl😭 god bless her and her family forever🙌🏻😇

  • omg I hate that happened to her, why wasn't nobody watching her

  • I don’t understand how that’s possible, not trying to be rude or anything but like how? Where did her intestines come out from?

  • Sorry about what happened to you maybe one day you'll be able to swoll food

  • Salma is so strong!!! I hope she gets all the help she needs 🙂

  • I feel sad

  • Girl do my make up. I can't fu**ing put lipstick on😭

  • I live in Alexandria…the city where her intestines got sucked out… I never heard of her story until now..

  • What would happen if she did swallow the food?

  • My sis is called salma

  • I felt bad for her ishallah it will get better

  • I am scared to swim now

  • Where did they come out?

  • She's def a normal but also extraodinary beautiful strong teen. God bless her and her health needs, financial needs for her and family and her awesome makeup vids

  • weird

  • I-I can’t swim… I can’t risk my organs being sucked out of my butt

  • now im scared to go to a public pool

  • How the hell is she still able to go near a pool

  • She is the sweetest💖she’s so positive and happy and can teach everyone a lesson to be grateful and be happy everyday that we have life. She melts my heart such a sweet young girl💖💖

  • Poor girl… Not being able to eat properly probably affects her growth. No way I would be able to tell she's 16. She looks like she's 10 with a little older face… Such a fighter. You're motivation for all of us.

  • I have had 5 of them lines and I still have one, I had cancer twice.

  • This made me cry, i can't imagine this happens to anyone, glad this gorgeous strong girl survived

  • How does she bare to go swimming again!? I'd be to traumatized!

  • What a beautiful,. Intelligent young lady. I think this has touched more than any other on Bancroft. I really hope she gets all she needs and lives a strong, long, amazing life. So incredibly brave. 🤗🙏🙏🙏💛

  • I bet if they started a go fund me that would receive a lot of help from people

  • Bruh she looks like a Indian scammer in the thumbnail.

  • she's so beautiful.. Wish she can get the money she needs

  • god bless, I'm not going to lie I'm about to go swim training and kind of put me off but I feel so bad for her. :C

  • What happens if u swallow the food???

  • What would happen if u swallowed something?

  • Her mom seems so amazing and supportive it is so good to have someone like that in your life; especially when you have something as traumatic as this happening. They’re both so strong and I’m so proud.

  • Poor girl keep fighting for your dreams

  • Praying for you. Im sharing your go fund me. I hope it helps.

  • God bless her and her mother

  • Im not tearing up……………………….your'e tearing up

  • She's so brave

  • You're so brave Salma! Continue to enjoy your life to the fullest dear! <3

  • Ayeeee I live near Pittsburgh

  • My anxiety went 📈

  • And she STILL goes swimming! Damn this girl deserves an award, no, a place in heaven…

  • Her spirit is inspiring

  • What If you accidentally swallow the food?

  • I couldn't believe it so I google… damn, I can't believe it is a normal thing in hotel pools… its terrifying!

  • I would be better if she died she is suffering too much now it's only a matter of time her body will shut down and no I really want her to live it's just that she may not make it past her 20's

  • Brave girl, she us a fighter, she can do this

  • If she was to swallow the food where would it go

  • wait. so when she sat down on the suction, it was so strong that it grabbed the small intestines and sucked it out of her butt?

  • I just realized that if she lost her pancreas she should have been diagnosed with diabetes

  • If I wasn't chubby (which I will get rid of by next Christmas)and my eye brows existed I would be pretty (to my taste)

  • The feeling of being hungry is so anoying

  • so a pool suction sucked out her ENTIRE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM!?

  • She is rude to her mom and all that she is doing for her but I'm glad she is alive

  • This was hard to watch I am so sorry this happened to you, it's hard to imagine that a FUN activity in a swimming pool can change a life like that – Very sad to watch, and makes me angry at the same time, because SAFETY should be the number one concern for establishments operating a pool. How could they have left a kids pool without safety mechanisms this is beyond me !!! Why hasn't the family sued the establishment, were there any clear warnings about the suction anywhere ? If not this would be clear negligence on the part of the establishment for not having proper safety and warnings..

    For people wondering out there, yes don't underestimate pool suction, they have to circulate a very large volume of water quickly to filter the water.

    Unfortunately medical treatment is very costly, too costly, I am shocked that you were unable to raise at least 1-2 millions already, there are some very rich folks out there, I hope you get big and well needed donations eventually…..Unfortunately in a bad situation myself I would have gladly donated if I could……. I am simply shocked in disbelief that there is no safety switch to cut off the pool's pump during such incidents, if not visible to the public, at least some place where life guards can access it quickly……… If something like that were to happen in America, Canada or Europe, etc… the company would be sued for millions of $, this would be an easy case in my opinion.

  • Salma!! You are a very inspiring, beautiful and talented young lady! If a genie gave me 3 wishes, my first wish would be to give u the gift of that surgery!! You are wonderful! I was feeling down then watched your story and then afterwards i felt better! Im going thru a medical crisis of my own and was feeling sorry 4 myself. Your story gave me hope and motivated me! U are awesome!!
