An unidentified girl was having a good time on New Year’s Eve in the waves on a beach in Copacabana beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, until she felt a sharp pain.
In Brazil, it’s reportedly good luck on New Year’s Eve to jump through seven waves in the ocean before the clock strikes midnight. But in this case, luck was not on her side.
She got out of the water, looked down at her leg and discovered that a little fish was hanging on for dear life. Ouch is all we can say.
Her friend then spend an excruciating two minutes trying to remove this fish’s barb from her leg, and somehow he managed to finally do it without totally tearing her leg up.
It’s not clear what kind of fish this was.
