Fish jumps down mans throat

October 15, 2017
A British man nearly died when a fish he had just caught jumped down his throat.
Medics were called to the pier in Boscombe, southern England, on October 5 and found a 28-year-old man having a cardiac arrest.
They were told he had kissed the 14-centimetre Dover sole to celebrate his catch, but it wriggled free and jumped down his throat, blocking his airway.
Members of Boscombe Pier Sea Anglers performed CPR on their friend before emergency services arrived.
Paramedics tried to remove the fish with forceps, but the fish’s barbs and gills were getting stuck on the way back up. On their sixth attempt they managed to extract it whole.
Ian Cowie from the group said “he was kissing the fish when it jumped down his throat. It’s a tradition to kiss your first catch.”
Paramedics managed to restart the unnamed man’s heart at the pier after working on him for three minutes.
