SOLE SUR­VIVOR

Fortean Times - - STRANGE DAYS -

Sam Quil­liam, 28, was kiss­ing a Dover sole he had caught on 5 Oc­to­ber when the 6in (14cm) fish wrig­gled out of his hand and jumped down his tra­chea. He stopped breath­ing and suf­fered car­diac ar­rest at the scene on Boscombe Pier, Bournemouth, Dorset. Paramedics man­aged to restart his heart and re­move the fish with for­ceps. The fish’s barbs and gills be­came stuck in Quil­liam’s throat, but Matt Har­ri­son ex­tracted it in one piece af­ter six at­tempts.
