Overheard – two bounces

In the lift
Two suited women enter, not speaking.

It becomes clear, however, that they were merely taking a breath – they launch into conversation again as soon as the doors close:

“…Apparently, it shot out so fast that neither her husband nor the midwife were able to catch it. They had to take it to hospital to make sure it was ok, ’cause it landed on its head half way across the room. S’aright now though.”

What?!
Is this possible?
I thought it was only ping pong balls we could do that with?
