A man showed up at an Auckland hospital emergency room last week with an unusual dilemma — an eel was stuck in his bottom.

The patient informed staff at Auckland City Hospital of his problem and X-rays confirmed his story.

"The eel was about the size of a sprig of asparagus and the incident is the talk of the place," a hospital source told the New Zealand Herald.

"Doctors and nurses have come across people with strange objects that they have got stuck where they shouldn't be before, but an eel has to be a first."

It is unclear how the eel became stuck inside the man but it is believed it was successfully removed.

Auckland District Health Board spokesman Matt Rogers confirmed the incident had occurred.

"We can confirm that an adult male presented at Auckland City Hospital this week with an eel inside him," he said.
