United Kingdom man resuscitated after fish jumps down throat

Kissing a fish is common practice among fishermen as a celebration of the catch but this one didn't go to plan.

The 28-year-old man, whose name was not released, was fishing on Boscombe Pier in Bournemouth on October 5 when he caught a 6-inch Dover sole, reports The Guardian.

Paramedics arrived to the scene in just two minutes, The Telegraph UK reports.

"Plainly we expected to get the fish out or this patient was not going to survive the short adventure to Royal Bournemouth Hospital", he said.

Mr Harrison said if he lost the fish or lost grip then he knew there was nothing more they would be able to do.

'We were told he had a whole fish stuck in his windpipe, ' said Martyn Box, from South Western Ambulance Service (SWAS).

Friends were performing CPR, as directed by an emergency medical dispatcher on the line from the 999 control room.

"It's tradition to kiss your first catch", Ian Cowie, one of the unnamed angler's fishing buddies.

It caused a complete obstruction of the man's airways and his face turned blue after the incident on Boscombe Pier in Bournemouth, Dorset.

Mr Harrison said that re-assessment of the patient inside the ambulance indicated further deterioration of his condition and a decline of cardiac output.

He said he tried to remove the fish with forceps "although the fish's barbs and gills were getting stuck on the way back up".

Mr Harrison included: "I have never gone to a more odd occurrence and don't think I ever will - yet we're all so happy the patient has no enduring impacts from his heart failure, which could so effectively have had such a lamentable and decimating result".
