Unhappy diner swallows fishing line at seafood buffet

A diner found an unpleasant surprise in his food when he accidentally swallowed a piece of fishing line.

Carl Sanderson was tucking into a seafood meal at the Ocean Garden Buffet in Toledo, Ohio, on Tuesday night when he made the unappetising discovery.

‘As I was eating the crayfish, I felt something tickling in the bottom of my throat,’ he told Toledo News.

‘I felt something on the side of my lip, so I reached for it and pulled it out and it was a fishing line…about a foot long.’

Mr Sanderson was given a free meal despite the restaurant manager blaming him for the stray line after he complained.

‘We do our best to prevent anything from happening to our food,’ explained the restaurant’s manager.

‘I know that something probably happened in this case, but this did not happen to two people and no other customers had this problem so we got his meal solved.’
