Cincinnati- Twenty-three year old Jason Dunsdale of River Park is in recovering in hospital after suffering a an acute anaphylactic reaction after mistakenly eating some cake containing traces of peanut butter at a house party on the weekend.
Mr. Dunsdale began to blow up like a balloon immediately after eating the cake but he had the presence of mind to counteract the reaction by stabbing himself with his epi-pen which he always carries with him. Unfortunately due to his panic and swelling of the face he was unable to see properly and attempted to stab himself in the leg numerous times with a Bic Clic causing blue pock marks to his thigh.
When Mr. Dunsdale cried in desperation that "It's not working" an alert party goer grabbed the pen from his hand, quickly scribbled it on a scrap of paper and handed it back to him saying "There you are."
Mr. Dunsdale says he plans to write a story about the event using the pen upon his recovery.
