Brazilian fisherman chokes to death after trying to hold catch in his teeth

The man was fishing with friends on a beach in Icapui, in the state of Ceara, at the time. 
After he reeled in a sole fish, he had bet with friends that he could hold the catch between his teeth. 

But the sole slipped down his throat and became trapped in his windpipe. 

The man managed to drive two miles to hospital, but collapsed and died when he got there.

Icapui’s police chief Carlos Alberto said doctors removed the fish, but it was too late.

He said: 'It was a silly thing to do, but he didn’t deserve to die because of it.'

On Tuesday the wife of the unnamed man posted a tribute to her husband on a social networking site.

She said: 'Only one thing comforts my heart, that I was the best wife and friend that I could have been. 

'The best woman that I could be, there, in every hour and in every moment.'
