Puffer fish bite

A teenager in Cambodia has been hospitalised after an unfortunate incident involving an angry puffer fish and his genitals.

According to local media reports, the 13-year-old was attacked by the puffer fish after it got trapped in the boy's net. Once it was released, it made a beeline for the boy's groin, and bit it.

The Koh Santepheap newspaper printed a picture of him in hospital with his testicles heavily strapped following the attack.

The boy is expected to recover from the incident - which occurred in Prek Pneuv, just outside Phnom Penh - although it's not known how much damage the angry puffer fish caused.

The bite of the puffer fish is reputed locally to be even worse than the poison from the fish's spines.
