WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police say a 2-year-old boy who had an octopus stuck in his throat is out of the hospital, and prosecutors are mulling whether charges are merited.

Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office spokesman Dan Dillon says police presented their case to prosecutors Friday. He says the case is "under consideration," though it's unclear how quickly prosecutors might decide the matter.

Police say the boy was taken to the hospital Tuesday night after the child's 21-year-old mother returned home from work and found her boyfriend performing CPR on her son.

Police say doctors found and removed the dead octopus, which had a head about 2 inches in diameter, from the boy's throat.

Police said the octopus was likely to be used for sushi.
