OMG! That is horrifying!
This needlefish jumped out of the water and stuck in the neck of Muhammad Idul in Indonesia.
This is a nightmare scenario! An Indonesia teen fishing with his parents in Sulawesi was impaled in the neck by a flying needlefish on January 18, 2020. Finally, after a life-saving surgery, doctors were able to remove the fish from his body.
The fish’s long snout sliced through the 16-year-old’s neck and pierced the back of his skull. Doing so, it created a large gaping hole that went straight through to the other side of the boy’s neck – from under his chin right through to the back of his skull.
The best option to remove the needlefish was a risky surgery that took place successfully on January 20, 2020.
Yes, indeed, the carotid artery, and the brain stem/spinal cord were very close. But luckily, the fish snout remained in the teen’s neck and blocked the bleeding.
Muhammad is still at the hospital right now, but should be soon released if his condition stays stable.
Now, Indonesia isn’t just known for its dangerous volcanoes and earthquakes. Now, they also have life-threatening needlefish. Find similar headlines on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [Facebook, Terkini]
