I've seen it all now. Shocked Shocked

Russian media has reported that a man who complained to doctors of severe chest pains was told he had a fir tree growing inside his lung.
The 2in (5cm) spruce, which was said to be touching the man's capillaries and causing severe pain, was removed.
Artyom Sidorkin, 28, from the Urals region of Russia, is believed to have inhaled a seed which then sprouted inside him.

Beware, graphic image.

Maybe the old wives tale about an apple tree growing inside you if you swallow the pips is true after all. Very Happy
