Tree growing from inside a man !!

It seems like a far fetched story and unbelievable when a 5cm fir tree was found growing inside a man’s lung in the Russian city of Izhevsk.

Fir tree grows inside man’s lungs

Artyom Sidorenko, a 28-year-old man, was thought to have a cancerous tumour after an x-ray examination. He had seizures and was coughing up blood.

He was operated upon and to the surgeon’s surprise found that it was a fir tree.

It must be very shocking indeed to learn that a tree can germinate and grow in his lungs. Who would have believed such a tale?

How did the fir tree get to grow in his lungs? He could be walking below the fir trees and then suddenly breathe in those seeds or bud and it got lodged inside his lungs where it was moist and dark .

A good condition for the seed to germinate as they do not need any sunlight at this stage.

When we were small , we were told what would happen when we accidenly swallowed the seed of a fruit. A tree would grow inside our body and then right through our head. LOL!

We will need to be extra careful when we walk around those fir trees or those trees which have tiny floating seeds.
