After rugby training, teen Dylan Fynn came home, downed his nachos and calmly announced at the family dinner table: "I nearly died today." "I just looked up and said: 'Did you love?'," mum Patrice recalled. It was only later that night, at a school disco, that she realised what Dylan said was true - at rugby training the Te Awamutu 13-year-old had choked on a giant gobstopper and was gasping for air.
