It seems like an aspiration. However, I assume that she is breathing normally and has no difficulty in it. Please take her to the Emergency room at the earliest and get a chest x-ray done to make sure that all is well.

I do not think 'wait and watch' is a good thing to do.

I wish her quick recovery.
