Lost finger turns up in Idaho lake fish

A US man who lost four fingers in an accident on a lake and joked they were "fish food" has found that is exactly what happened to one of them.

The little finger turned up three months later inside a trout when two anglers, Nolan Calvin and Mark Blackstone, were examining their catch on the shores of Priest Lake, Idaho.

Police then fingerprinted it and traced the owner, Hans Galassi, 31, who says he does not want it back.

Pia Harold reports.
