My Intestines Got Sucked Out In A Swimming Pool | TRULY

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV:

A horrific swimming pool accident left a teenager without her intestines and unable to eat food for the last 10 years. When she was five-years-old, Salma Bashir was playing in a baby swimming pool in Alexandria, Egypt. She sat on the pool’s suction valve and the force was so strong that it ripped her small intestines from her body. Given just weeks to live Salma’s parents travelled with their young family to Pennsylvania, USA for life-saving surgery. Salma was then on a waiting list for a transplant and after a year and a half of waiting, she had the surgery that her family believed would be the start of the rest of Salma’s life. Instead the small intestines transplant rejected and after six months it had to be removed along with Salma’s large intestines and gallbladder; her stomach also had to remain open. Salma now receives all her nutrients via a TPN tube. Hopes for a future transplant are slim – the estimated cost of the five-organ transplant are $3 million but that’s not stopping Salma for giving it everything she’s got: the chatty teen has raised $15,000 already on her Gofundme page, while her makeup channel is a chance for Salma to escape her daily pain and discomfort.

  1. I’m 15 and a national level swimmer(freestyle,breaststroke). I swear my whole body was shivering in pain while watching the video, i really dunno whether ill be able to even get into the pool tomorrow or not. This developed some kinda phobia. I’m scared 🙁
    edit- hats off to her, swimming even after going though such a tragic accident.

  2. I still don’t understand how exactly how her intestines somehow got sucked out? I don’t see how its physiologically possible? sounds like some hollywood movie kind of thing? If it happened, why couldn’t they put it back in?

  3. I didn’t quite catch what she said happened. I heard she was in a swimming pool and then somebody told that her intestines were hanging out of her stomach. What happened ??? It was obviously an accident how did this awful injury occur? I really want to know what happened so I can enjoy this video.

  4. Oh my gosh pool drains have always scared me and I never go near them, and I’m right to do so and to be scared of them! I’ve read stories like hers online just making me even more scared when near them.

  5. when i was a baby i had a hole in my heart but it closed when i was 4 and when i was just born my mother didn’t get to see me now she sees me every day

  6. U r a true warrior never let anything get in ur way in life stay blessesd and stay humble forever keep u in prayers always never give god bless

  7. God bless you please stay positive don’t give up God will bless you and make a way for you in Jesus name Amen 🙏 ❤

  8. Title: My Intestines Got Sucked Out In A Swimming Pool

    God when do you suck us up to heaven let us all just live in harmony please

  9. Masha’Allah she’s so brave and her sweet mother, may Allah bless them with mercy and good health Insha’Allah 💕❤️

  10. We get so wrapped up in our own lives, our challenges, arguing with people, stress at work, some of us complain about living conditions and then there’s this; this is a tragic yet inspirational video and I wish I could do something to help. Is there a go-fund me page?

  11. Yeah i know this is kinda rude to ask but
    Did her organs came out of her v—-a or a–s

    Im curious i wanna know

    I hate pools
    Thats why i use the shower as a pool

  12. $3 milion dollars… meanwhile in Brazil we have a public health system where 96% of all transplants made in Brazil are 100% free of charge (including everything you will need for it) and still there are people thinking that this public system should end..
