FishIn 410px 14 11 05A man was forced to undergo radical surgery to have a live fish removed from his intestine.

Graphic footage shows the man from Londrina, Brazil, having an operation to remove a South American lungfish from his body.

In the horrific clip, a surgeon pulls out the eel-like fish, known to grow up to a length of 125 cm (4.10 ft), which had apparently burrowed into the man's body.

It can be seen being taken from his abdomen and wrapped in a cloth.

Miraculously, the fish was still very much alive when it was removed - and can be seen wriggling around.

One report suggests it was 2ft long, although this has not been verified.

The creature later had to be euthanised, according to the Brazilian news website

The unidentified man, who has recovered from the operation, has since made a formal complaint after staff at Hospital Universitário (University Hospital) in Londrina filmed the surgery.
