His belly was opened to remove the fish because it was ‘quite big’.
One nurse was heard saying, “It stinks so much!”

“A duty doctor gave him an X-ray scan and we spotted a metal object in the patient’s abdominal cavity.
“During the surgery, we removed a metal chopstick from [his] colon,” one of the medics said.
