Norwegian police were ready to declare a state of emergency when 25,000 Justin Bieber fans descended on the pop star's hotel in Oslo earlier this week. But it was Bieber who caused an emergency at his Paris gig when he ran into a glass wall and later collapsed off-stage. He tells TMZ that it hurt when he first banged his head during the performance but said: "My adrenaline pushed me through it and I performed the last song. After that I went off stage and immediately I felt really weak and I was walking down the stairs and I passed out for like 15 seconds."
FISH 'PULLED ALIVE FROM INDIAN BOY'S LUNG'
A fish was pulled alive from a boy's lung after he inhaled it by mistake, claims The Sun. Anil Barela was playing in a river in Madhya Pradesh, India, where the newspaper explains "groups of youths often swallow live fish for fun". The 12-year-old boy swallowed a 3.5 inch fish but it somehow ended up in his lung and he started struggling to breathe. He was given emergency surgery and doctors found the fish was still alive when they got it out. One reader, however, suggest the tale sounded "quite fishy", while another wondered if the boy had been left with "halibutosis".
