A fisherman nearly choked to death after a fish jumped out of the water and dived straight into his throat.

The spiny freshwater anabas fish got stuck between the unfortunate angler’s throat and nasal cavity as he tried to escape through his nose.

However, due to its spikes, it caused extensive damage to its interior and when it was finally removed, it was soaked in the man’s blood.

Doctors at Thailand’s Phatthalung Provincial Hospital were stunned when the fisherman told them on May 22 that a fish had jumped into his mouth.

The team did an X-ray and found the five-inch-long, spiny fish inside him.

The fish was eventually pulled out of the fisherman’s mouth as he tried to wriggle through his throat and out of his nose.

Hospital official Sermsri Pathompanichrat added: “The likelihood of this happening is very small. I’ve never seen a case like this.”
