MAN HOSPITALISED AFTER EATING LIVE CRAB AS REVENGE ACT FOR DAUGHTER
A man in China has been hospitalised after he swallowed a live crab.
The 39-year-old man became ill two months after he ate a live crab. The aim of the act was to avenge his daughter.
He arrived at the hospital with severe back pain.
Doctors were puzzled by the pathology changes in his chest, abdomen, liver and digestive system, reports the South China Morning Post.
The man only admitted to eating the crab after his wife mentioned the incident to doctors.
“I asked him, ‘Why did you eat a live crab?” He said, ‘I wanted to take revenge for my daughter,” the man’s doctor told the Morning Post.
The man explained that he was on the banks of a small stream with his daughter when she was pinched by the small crab. As an act of revenge, the man got angry and put the crab in his mouth.
Business Insider reports that blood tests later showed he had three parasite infections from eating the live crab, according to the Morning Post, who noted that he has since recovered but will require follow-ups.
