Fish nearly killed man

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

A PRANK al­most proved fatal when a 28-year-old man swal­lowed a dover sole he had just caught.

The man had been jok­ing around with the 14cm fish and put it over his mouth but it wig­gled free and jumped down his throat — caus­ing a com­plete block­age. When paramedics ar­rived at Boscombe pier in Dorset they found the man had col­lapsed and stopped breath­ing.

Af­ter six tries, they dis­lodged the fish, which came out in one piece, and the man re­cov­ered.
