throw away in your hand

Hello,
I know that 'throw up' means 'vomit', but can 'throw away' mean 'vomit' too? I've found this sentence in a US novel. Mother and child (Bubber) have a car accident, and the boy starts crying:

“Bubber stop,” said Sunny. She choked and gagged.
“Mommy, are you going to throw away? THROWING AWAY IN YOUR HAND IS WRONG.”


Thanks

    In my experience, "to throw away" has never been used to mean "to vomit." The child must have used the expression erroneously, most likely due to his young age.
