This pen cap has saved hundreds of children’s life

Can you believe a pen cap can save hundreds of children’s life? Hmm, many of us would say “How”. Well, the explanation is below.

Actually, before 1991 every company who was making pens, used to design the normal pen caps (i.e. without any hole at the top pointer).

But in 1991, the company BIC introduced a new design to the world in which the pen caps had a hole at the top pointer.

Well, now you must be wanting to know “Why this hole”.

So, at that time there were several news of kids dying because of accidentally swallowing the pen caps which eventually stopping them to breath, resulting their death.
