Mya's parents, Aaron and Emma Whittington of Hutchinson, Kansas, became worried when they saw a golf ball-sized lump on their daughter's neck and rushed her to the emergency room. They were sent home, but returned the next day when they noticed a small bump growing on the lump.
After being sent to specialists in Wichita, Kansas, the tip of a feather began to emerge from near the child's jaw. A doctor pulled out the 2-inch object.
