Gruesome Footage: Medics Remove Whole Fish From Man's Rectum in China

A 30-year-old man in China has had a whole fish removed from his rectum after he had allegedly sat on it by accident.  

Gruesome footage shows medics removing the dead blue tilapia from the patient’s body at a hospital.

Reports from local media did not specify the fish’s size but the species usually measures 30-40 centimetres (12-16 inches) long.

The incident is believed to have taken place last Tuesday at the Zhaoqing First People’s Hospital in Guangdong province of southern China.

Doctors made the shocking discovery during an X-ray scan after the 30-year-old man had gone to the hospital for severe abdominal pain.

The patient, who remains anonymous, claimed that the fish slipped into his rectum after he had accidentally sat on the creature, according to Guangdong Television.

The man eventually came to the hospital after failing to remove the fish from his backside himself.

The medics had to surgically open the man’s belly to remove the dead fish from his rectum because the fish was ‘quite big’.

A nurse can be heard in the video saying: ‘It stinks so much!’

It remains unclear if the patient has fully recovered.

Another elderly Chinese resident recently had a 10-inch chopstick lodged in his belly after inserting it into his backside ‘out of curiosity’.

The 68-year-old man from Hubei claimed that he was interested in checking his backside after developing piles.

The patient was discharged from the hospital after medics removed the metal stick from the pensioner’s intestines.

Media reports did not specify the chopstick’s length, but the Chinese cutlery is typically about 25-centimetre (10-inch) long.

Footage released by Pear Video shows the long chopstick stuck in the patient’s belly. It can even be seen moving up and down slightly as the resident breathes.

The elderly man visited a hospital in Xiangyang, Hubei province of central China on April 22 after he suffered severe abdomen pains, an unnamed doctor told the local press.

‘A duty doctor gave him an X-ray scan and we spotted a metal object in the patient’s abdominal cavity,’ said the medic.

‘During the surgery, we removed a metal chopstick from [his] colon.’

The elderly resident confessed to the medics that he was using the stick to check his haemorrhoids ‘out of curiosity’.

Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins located around the lower part of the anus and rectum.

‘As of this patient, he inserted a metal chopstick from anus to a deep position in his colon,’ the doctor added. ‘It is indeed very rare.’
