Can you swallow your tongue? **Please do not answer if you do not actually know**?

Additional Details
In 1994 Rubens Barrichello (Brazilian F1 race driver) got involved in a high speed crash. Doctor Sid Watkins, the medic that first attended, had to pull his tongue out because he had swalloewd it. I would like to have a response from those in the medical field. Links to external pages would be greatly appreciated.

Impossible unless someone cut it off and then you swallowed it.

I have to differ. My mom had a condition when she was pregnant w/ me (can't remember what it's called) and she had to have some device in her mouth @ all times so she wouldn't swallow her tongue.

That tendon between the underside of your tongue and the bottom of your mouth is what will always keep you from swallowing your own tongue.
If you cut that, then 'yes', you could concievably swallow your tongue.

Technically speaking, your tongue is already swallowed. But practically speaking, why not? I mean, of course your tongue would have to be severed off somehow, and theres no where else to go but down. But how could you swallow your tongue if you still have it connected to your mouth silly?

No, you can not swallow your tongue. If you become unconscious and are laying on your back, the muscles that control your tongue will relax and the tongue will fall back, blocking your airway. But you can not swallow your tongue.
