Angler who nearly died when Dover sole jumped down his throat reveals he was trying to kiss the fish

13 Oct

He said: “The fish was slippery one way and rough on the other. I picked it up off the floor and went to give it a kiss.

“I squeezed it and, like a bar of soap, it jumped out of my hand and into my mouth and swam down my throat. I ran around like a headless chicken and then collapsed.

“I was terrified from what I remember, but I don’t remember a lot.”

Before explaining his story, he turned to paramedic Matt and said: “Thank you very much, you are a credit to yourself, a credit to the NHS – you are a hero.”
