Muhammad Idul, 16, was fishing in southern Indonesia when a needlefish leaped out and impaled its long, sharp jaws into his neck. He was then taken to a nearby hospital in the city of Baubau but the staff there did not want to remove the fish from his neck because the operation needed specialist equipment. The teenager was transferred to another hospital in the city of Makassar where doctors performed a delicate one-hour operation to remove the fish from his neck.
