A drunken Chinese man had to have emergency surgery recently to remove a live eel slithering through his body. Doctors say the man inserted the eel up his rectum, an act he recreated after watching a kinky adult film.
The 39-year-old man rushed to the casualty unit of a south China hospital, begging doctors to remove the eel trapped inside him. “Please, please help me. The eel is moving through my body,” pleaded the unidentified man. Surgeons found the 20 inch long Asian swamp eel clinging to the intestinal wall of the man, who suffered massive internal bleeding from the snakelike fish puncturing his colon. “This was a particularly idiotic stunt and could have caused him a serious injury. Eels have small but very sharp teeth,” said the hospital spokesperson.
After several hours, surgeons were able to successfully remove the one pound eel that was still alive when removed, but died shortly thereafter.
Police are now investigating the man for animal cruelty.
