A fisherman in Egypt nearly lost his life after one of his catches got stuck in his windpipe, making it almost impossible for him to breathe or retrieve the fish. Doctors found the fish stuck at the entrance to the trachea, leaving just enough space for a little air to get through and prevent the man from suffocating before even reaching the hospital.
Doctors were able to remove the fish with endoscopic surgery and to their surprise the fish was still alive!
Doctors said if the poor man had been brought in only a few minutes later, he would have suffocated. Luckily, the patient is fine and should make a full recovery. Now for those of you who are wondering how in the hell did this happen?
The 40-year-old patient told doctors that he had just caught a small fish when he noticed that the line of another fishing rod was pulling.
