I'm not sure how it happened...but it did. A man got a live fish caught in his mouth and then had to get doctors to remove it. Was this some sort of bet gone seriously wrong?

(via Reddit)Not much is known about the incident, but Daily Mail and Reddit commenters wager the man is Malaysian. Other than that, your guess is as good as any as to how this unfortunate and bizarre thing happened. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/swallow-fish/
