An 18-year-old man had to undergo a three hour operation to remove a peanut stuck in his gullet.

The incident occurred after Wang Gang, 18, decided to throw the peanut in his mouth while drinking beers.

Wang was drinking with his family in the south-eastern Chinese province of Guangdong at the time.

The teen threw the peanut in the air and caught it in his mouth, but immediately started to regret his decision after he started to cough and experience breathing difficulties.

He tried to solve the problem by trying to make himself vomit, as he repeatedly put his fingers down his throat.

However, his attempts failed.

Doctors had to operate on him for three hours to remove the peanut, according to local media.

Thankfully for Wang, the surgery was a success and his breathing difficulties and coughing fits went away.

He is currently recovering in a hospital ward and will be released from hospital soon.
