We report a case of unexpected kinking of endotracheal (ET) tube in an infant who was being operated in supine position and positioned away from the anesthetist. The usual management mentioned in the literature was unsuccessful. So, a simple and unique solution that can be useful in unanticipated kinking of ET tube is described.
