According to China Daily, a male visitor to a hot spring club has had his external reproductive organs nibbled on by fish.

The man, who visited a Dalian spa in China’s Liaoning province, received a treatment where fish is used to clean the skin of spa visitors. These fish normally eat dead tissue only, but for reasons that remain unknown they started to nibble on the man’s private parts.

The damage wasn’t discovered until the injured spa guest exited the bath and the manager of the club noticed that the man was bleeding. The guest was promptly rushed to a nearby hospital to receive treatment for his unusual wound.

The nibbled on spa guest will not be compensated since he violated the club rule about always wearing swimming trunks during spa treatments.

We have not been able to confirm this story so it might be an Urban legend that made it into the China daily.
