The frog, said to be about the size of a man's clenched fist, barely fit into Cheek's mouth, but after bathing the creature in cooking oil, it slid in quite easily. According to eye witness accounts, this is when the frog began to show its unwillingness to be swallowed.
After a five minute struggle between Cheek's tongue and the slippery mascot, the frog became logged firmly in Cheek's throat. Cheeks panicked after being unable to cough up the frog and paramedics were called.
Upon arrival by the paramedics, more confusion took place. They were told a student had a frog in his throat. This made them think someone was playing a prank on them. Once they saw that Cheeks indeed had a frog in his throat, they began assisting his breathing.
Cheeks arrived at Bridgeport General and was placed in the ICU, where he still was as of this report.
OFF THE WALL NEWS will stay on this story until the final outcome. What makes this story different said fellow student, Wally Cleaver, is that many frat members are praying for the frog to pull through.
