She is a young girl with whooping cough. You hear her paroxysmal cough first without a whoop, but she is a little sick. You then hear two more paroxysms, both followed by the distinctive whooping sound. It is the noise of breathing in, and comes from the larynx (voice box).

The sound will stop when you leave this page
