Eli Roth Stung By Deadly Sea Urchins
The Inglourious Basterds star was one mile from shore when he was pulled under by a sinkhole off the coast of Careyes 10 days ago. To escape, Roth climbed a rock that was covered in sea urchins which unleashed the deadly spikes into his body, reports TMZ.com. A nearby fisherman saved the star.
Roth tells TMZ the doctor couldn't anesthetize his foot because of swelling - the medic was forced to pluck the spikes out with a pair of tweezers.
However, he hasn't let the incident hinder plans to attend his next red carpet event - the recovering star still plans to attend the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night.
