A man sought emergency treatment at hospital in Auckland this week with an eel stuck up his bottom.
The unnamed individual presented himself at the A&E department at Auckland City Hospital to explain his embarrassing problem.
It is believed the patient was sent for X-rays and a scan, which showed there was an eel lodged inside him.
“The eel was about the size of a decent sprig of asparagus and the incident is the talk of the place,” a hospital source said. “Doctors and nurses have come across people with strange objects that have got stuck where they shouldn’t be before, but an eel has to be a first.”
It is unclear how the eel managed to be trapped inside the man. It is believed medics successfully removed it and the man was later discharged.
