Catch of the day: Fish-slapped girl gets spiny attachment

Some beach silliness ended up with a young woman having a catfish stuck to her flesh and dangling from her leg.

Things were going great for Tina and her friends as they were out on the beach catching some sun and fooling around in a video supposedly filmed in the United States.

A little fish-slapping never hurt anyone, right? Wrong. Tina, as her friends call her, wearing sunglasses and a large-brimmed straw hat, really had it coming when her buddy slapped her with a catfish.

The fish got stuck to Tina’s skin and wouldn’t come off. It just stayed there, dangling from her leg. “This is my life now,” she says.

The trick is that catfish have serrated spines in their fins and if they penetrate the flesh it’s difficult to remove them without tearing the skin.

A follow up video shows Tina lying on her side as a friend holds ice to the area to which the fish is firmly attached. Behind the scenes the crowd suggests “pure vodka” as a possible aid to the situation.
