(TELEGRAPH) — A Brazilian angler died after a fish he had just caught swam down his throat and choked him to death, according to reports.

The man was fishing with friends on a beach in Icapui, in Brazil’s northeastern state of Ceara, when he reeled in a small sole fish, according to police.

The fishermen then reportedly made a bizarre bet with his friends that he would be able to hold the slippery fish between his teeth for a minute.

But no sooner had he put the fish into his mouth that it escaped and swam down his throat, getting lodged in the man’s windpipe.
