This comes from an episode of NCIS. An agent is being chased by the bad guys and swallows the card from his digital camera so that they can't find it. He knows that if he's killed the navy would order an autopsy. During the autopsy, the M.E. finds the card in the agent's stomach and the team retrieves the photos they need from the card to solve the case. I assume that in real life, the stomach acids would have damaged the electrical contacts on the card.
Re: Would a mermory card (e.g. from a camera) be usable after being swallowed?
