A 30-year-old Chinese man was found with a dead fish up his bum claiming that it found its way up there when he accidentally sat on it.
The man, whose identity was not shared with the public, reportedly traveled to the Zhaoqing First People’s Hospital in Guangdong, China on June 3, 2020.
He went to the hospital with abdominal pain.
He then had a series of CT and X-ray scans that found out that he had a freshwater fish inside him.
When asked by the medical officers how it got there, the man said that he accidentally sat on it.
A medic said:
Do you think I’m an idiot?
After the fish, a Mozambique Tilapia was found inside his stomach.
The bad part about this was that surgeons decided to open up his abdomen because the fish was too big to be removed through an emergency endoscopy.
They then found that the spiny fins of the fish caused ruptures in his large intestines.
Images that were shared on the internet shows the fish being removed, which is said to have a very bad smell.
After it got removed, the surgeons place the fish onto a sheet that was right next to the victim, showed the pictures that were shared with us.
The Mozambique tilapia can grow up to 40 centimeters long.
Authorities did not share the exact size of the fish that they removed.
The patient is currently recovering from the surgery that they got through.
It remains a mystery on how the creature got there or if it was alive or dead when it got inserted there.
