Russian surgeons say they've removed a two-inch fir tree growing inside a man's lung. Doctors x-rayed the man's lung and saw what they believed was a tumor, but when they cut the tissue they discovered green needles.
Artyom Sidorkin, who's 28-years-old, came to the hospital complaining of pain in his chest and that he was coughing blood. He believes he inhaled the branch.
A botanist said the fir tree could not have been growing in the lung, because a plant needs light to grow. But surgeons believed the fir plant was actually growing in the man's lung.
