CAIRO, Egypt -- An Egyptian teenager choked to death after a fish entered his mouth as he was swimming, Egyptian daily al-Wafd reported.
Eighteen-year-old Yasser Ahmad Hussein was swimming in lake Qaroun, southwest of Cairo, when the freak accident occurred.
Yasser was celebrating the three-day feast marking the end of the religious fasting month of Ramadan by swimming with his friends in the lake in al-Faiyoum.
Medics at the scene failed to resuscitate the youth who died before he reached hospital, the paper said.
