Watch as little children are made to swallow live fish to cure asthma … see video clip

Little boys and girls have been subjected to a torturous process of swallowing a live fish to purposely cure asthma. A heartbreaking video has shown the moment little children were forced to swallow live fish as part of a ritual thought to ease breathing problems in India.

A crowd of 100,000 people gathered at Hyderabad’s Exhibition Ground to take part in the ritual, where instead of an asthma pump Indians of all ages participate in an annual ceremony in which they must eat the wriggling fish.

Sufferers gather every June in the southern city to gulp down the fish stuffed with a yellow herbal paste, in the hope it will help them breathe more easily.
