A teenager in Cambodia has been hospitalised after an unfortunate incident involving an angry puffer fish and his genitals.

According to local media reports, the 13-year-old was attacked by the puffer fish after it got trapped in the boy's net. Once it was released, it made a beeline for the boy's groin, and bit it.

The Koh Santepheap newspaper printed a picture of him in hospital with his testicles heavily strapped following the attack.
