Man Tries to Kiss Fish, but It Jumps Down His Throat and Causes Cardiac Arrest

It’s a fishy tale!

A man following tradition of kissing the first catch got something he didn’t expect after the fish wriggled into his mouth and down his throat, cutting off his airway. He went into cardiac arrest and paramedics rushed to dislodge the fish. It had to come out in one piece or risk even further obstruction of his airway and little chance they could clear it in time to save him.

The paramedics finally were able to extract the Dover sole fish from the man’s throat. No word on if he had fish and chips afterward to celebrate being alive another day.
