Amira explained local media that her daughter shouted that the baby had swallowed something which looked like a pin.
She added that the baby had probably found the pin from her headscarf which she dropped between the door and the car seat.
At hospital it was confirmed with an X-ray scan that the baby had swallowed a pin which was then removed with excretion.
The pin was later found in the baby’s stool, according to local media.
The nine-month-old is receiving treatment at hospital in the capital city of Kuala Terengganu.
It is not clear whether she had suffered any injuries after swallowing the pin nor if her condition is stable now.
