AN EXCITED teenage girl overwhelmed at being so close to her heroes screamed so hard at a One Direction gig her lungs COLLAPSED.
The 16-year-old from Texas was rushed to A&E unable to breathe.
She was suffering no chest pain or other signs something could be wrong.
The mega fan had no history of lung conditions, and made no complaints of a sore throat or cough.
But, baffled medics were told she began to suffer her symptoms after screaming her head off at a One Direction concert, the night before.
After examining her, doctors noticed an unusual popping noise under her skin after pressing on her chest and throat.
The 16-year-old started to notice she was short of breath the morning after the gig in Dallas, Texas .An X-ray confirmed their suspicions.
Air had escaped from the girl's lungs and made its way into other parts of her body.
It had become lodged there, and when the doctors pressed on her skin the air bubbles underneath popped, causing the crackling sound.
The doctors, at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, diagnosed the girl with a spontaneous "small bilateral pneumothoraces".
