The 28-year-old man, whose name was not released, was fishing on Boscombe Pier in Bournemouth on October 5 when he caught a 6-inch Dover sole, reports The Guardian.

Paramedics arrived at the scene at Boscombe Pier in Bournemouth to find that the 28-year-old's heart had stopped for three minutes as friends desperately attempted to perform CPR.

British paramedics say a man nearly died when a fish he had just caught jumped down his throat.

Friends were performing CPR, as directed by an emergency medical dispatcher on the line from the 999 control room.

Upon arrival, paramedic Matt Harrison could see the patient had a blocked airway and was in cardiac arrest - but had to be careful not to make the situation worse.

Paramedics managed to remove the fish with forceps in an ambulance.

Mr Harrison said that re-assessment of the patient inside the ambulance indicated further deterioration of his condition and a decline of cardiac output.

"I utilized a laryngoscope to completely expand the mouth and throat and saw what seemed like a modified shade of tissue in his throat".

They made five attempts to pull the fish free but the thwarted by its barb and gills which were stuck in the angler's throat.

"I was acutely aware that I only had one attempt at getting this right".

In the long run after six endeavors the fish turned out in one piece and surprisingly it was an entire dover sole, measuring around 14cm long.

"I have never attended a more freakish incident and don't think I ever will", Harrison said, according to The Bournemouth Daily Echo.

The ambulance service said on Thursday the man, who has not been identified, suffered "no lasting effects" from the mishap.
