# If something is halfway in a bag of holding… what happens to it? [duplicate]

If I put something in the bag of holding and get attacked, and drop it, so it's laying half in and half out of the bag.. what happens to the item?

Meaning if I'm putting a long piece of lumber inside the bag of holding, and drop it before I finish putting the lumber inside, does the lumber get bisected? Or does it just hang out there. Is there a spot in the center not in the portal, but not out of it?

• note: "Limbo" in D&D (at least 5e) is its own plane, the plane of ultimate chaos, home to the Githzerai, Slaadi, and a few others. Using the phrase "to be in limbo" could, therefore, be confusing to some, and is best avoided. – PixelMaster Apr 22 at 12:19
• I changed it to accommodate this. – Thatguy Apr 23 at 4:19
• I'm mainly asking if the mouth of the bag of holding would destroy, bisect, cut, or hurt the item in any way. Its not the item that i'm worried about. its the bag itself. Also, the question prior was if it could be carried that way, and if you read the comments, was not fully answered. – Thatguy Apr 23 at 11:20
• @Thatguy the edit you made (a) does, indeed, pose a novel question, and (b) invalidates the existing answer. As such I'm going to revert the edit, re-close the question as a duplicate, and ask/encourage you to pose your new question in a new post. Thanks! – nitsua60 Apr 23 at 12:47
