Angler who swallowed fish reunited with paramedic who saved him

An angler who suffered a cardiac arrest when he accidentally swallowed a fish said he feels lucky to have survived.

Sam Quilliam, 28, was saved by paramedic Matt Harrison who retrieved the Dover sole after it "swam down" the fisherman's throat.

Mr Quilliam had been pretending to kiss his 14cm-long catch on Boscombe Pier, Bournemouth, when the accident happened.
