Eli Roth stung by deadly sea urchins
Thu, 07 Jan 2010 12:18p.m.
Actor-director Eli Roth was left in agony during a festive vacation to Mexico - after he was engulfed in waves while kayaking and then stung 200 times by sea urchins.
The Inglourious Basterds star was 1.6km 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 anaesthetise his foot because of swelling - the medic was forced to pluck the spikes out with a pair of tweezers.
But 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.
