LIVE fish surgically removed from man’s throat after he accidentally swallowed it
Doctors in Egypt were successful in surgically removing a live fish from a fisherman’s throat after he accidentally swallowed it while trying to hold it in his mouth.
The 40-year-old man, who had been fishing in Beni Suef a city located 110km south of Cairo, arrived at the hospital’s emergency department on Saturday, November 7, in a life-threatening condition as he was struggling to breathe and had difficulty speaking. The man later reported that he was trying to hold the fish between his lips while attempting to catch another with his hands, when the slippery sucker slid down his throat.
A video shows a doctor prying the fish, which appears to be several inches long, from the man’s mouth with one hand.
The operation lasted ten minutes and the patient recovered in the hospital’s ICU. The fish did not.
