Live fish found in 12-year-old boy's lung

Plenty of kids accidentally swallow bugs or eat dirt while playing, but 12-year-old Anil Barela went a bit further: he accidentally inhaled a nine-centimeter fish while playing in river in central India's Khargone district. The fish was still alive and flapping when the doctors performed a bronchoscopy.


The fish was surgically removed, and all is well — except, perhaps, for the fish. The above video is in Hindi, but you can see footage from the bronchoscopy as well as the liberated (but likely dead) fish.
