The fire service didn’t have tools to unhook the barbed tail and hence cut off the barbs.
A trip to the beach probably seems like a pleasant experience but things can quickly go wrong due to an unexpected turn of events. Marine life may be fascinating to look at but some creatures can leave people in pain.
A holidaymaker was just enjoying a day out at the beach when he decided to take a dip in the sea. But he was soon seen running out of the water when a stingray’s barbed tail managed to get inside his shorts and get hooked on his penis.
The man was crying in pain while lying down on the sand with the creature. The fire service didn’t have tools to unhook the barbed tail and hence cut off the barbs.
It is still unclear if the man was exposed to venom as he accompanied paramedics to a hospital for a check-up.
