    Teenage boy is IMPALED by a needlefish that jumped out of the water and stabbed him in the neck - piercing through the back of his SKULL

    An Indonesian boy has required lifesaving surgery after being impaled in the neck by a flying needlefish.

    Muhammad Idul was fishing with his parents in Buton waters off the South East Sulawesi province on Saturday when a needlefish jumped out of the water.

    The fish's long slender snout sliced straight through the 16-year-old's neck and pierced the back of his skull.

    The student was rushed to hospital for treatment, before undergoing risky surgery to remove the fish from his neck two days later.
