Weird Wide Web

From The Australian :
A Cambodian teenager suffocated when a fish he caught jumped out of his hands and lodged in his throat, newspapers reported today.

Lim Vanthan, 17, and his family were planting rice at the weekend near their home on the outskirts of the impoverished South-East Asian nation's capital, when they decided to go for a swim.

During his dip, Lim Vanthan caught a prized 20 cm fish, called kantrob in Cambodian, with his hands.

But the high school student's excitement was short-lived when his catch squirmed out of his hands and jumped into his mouth, where it became stuck because of barbs running down its back.
