Angler dies after swallowing fish

12 posts in this topic

The man was fishing with friends on a beach in Icapui, in Brazil's northeastern state of Ceara, when he reeled in a small sole fish, according to police.

The fishermen then reportedly made a bizarre bet with his friends that he would be able to hold the slippery fish between his teeth for a minute.

But no sooner had he put the fish into his mouth that it escaped and swam down his throat, getting lodged in the man's windpipe.

The things people do for a bet :no:

Heimlich maneuver?

Can't read this article either.

I read an incident where a fish jumped into a boy's throat and almost choked him to death. Luckily, he survived.

Wow.. he drove two miles before dying.. what a horrible and most likely painful death.... the moral of this story is.... never go fishing without someone who knows the heimlich manuever(you never know when a fish will jump into your mouth)..... or.. don't take on bets in which live fish are inserted into the mouth..... im not sure which one is a better fit.. ill let you be the judge.

Cute? It's got two eyes on the side of its head :lol:

Ehh, both eyes on one side of its head, I mean.

That, in my eyes, does not eliminate the 'cute' factor :)

My only summation is that the wife didn't like him too much if all she could say on the message board after he died was how great a wife she was to him.

WTF?

Also what an idiotic thing to do.
