Hello, Try to gargle and spit it out...I hope that you have someone with you??
Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Let me know of your progress . It should be able to dislodge and come out with a few gargle attempts ...I would not try to swallow it at this point to reduce risk of you choking ...

I hope someone is with you so that if you should have this switch to a choking episode then the person with you could perform Heimlich maneuver ....
