Is this dangerous?!

Hello everyone, I really need your help because i don't know if I'm paranoid or what!

I was getting a painkiller out of a packet, and great luck, I popped it out and it flew behind the radiator (wall-mounted). I switched the radiator off and have had a poke around, but I can't see it or feel it or anything!

Is it dangerous to switch the radiator back on and leave it there? I'm bloody freezing!

Is it a plastic capsule thingy? If yes, it may melt. What are you most worried about? Can't you get a torch and have a look, it may actually be on the skirting board underneath?

was it one of those liquid filled ones? i suppose it might burst and stain the wall?

Do you have a toddler that might find it?

Do you have young DCs who might find it? If not I can't see it being dangerous as such, just potentially messy.

Thanks for your replies guys, it isn't a liquid filled capsule, it's one of those chalky type pills.

I couldn't care less about mess, I'm worried about it being dangerous, just imagining loads of things like my radiator bursting into flames or something!

Do u know, I would probably worry about the same thing and fumes! (I am a worrier tho). Hopefully someone will come along and reassure.

Those tabs are notoriously pingy tho, could it have fallen right through and rolled off somewhere else?
