The eel was removed from the patient’s stomach and appears to be wriggling as it’s extracted.
The video was posted on LiveLeak and is thought to be from China.
It is possible the patient in the video is the same person who put an eel up his anus last month.
The man known as Liu, 49, arrived in ER at a hospital in the Bayun District last week complaining of a bloated stomach and severe stomach cramps reports Guangzhou Daily.
Rushed into surgery, doctors were horrified to find a 50cm long eel that had ruptured the man’s intestines and was lodged in his body.
Surgeons removed the sea creatures and were amazingly able to save Liu’s life.
