Montreal father removes daughter’s tooth using fishing line


  Posted by: The Probe      23rd July 2020

In international news this week, several mainstream media outlets shared the story of a man from Montreal removing his daughter’s loose tooth using a fishing line. We’ll categorise this one under the heading ‘Don’t Try This At Home!’

The footage, as shared above, shows David Freiheit wrapping a fishing line around his daughter’s tooth before attaching it to a hook and throwing it into the water. His son then removes his sister’s tooth by reeling in the fish.

Speaking to Storyful, David Freiheit said, “Our family has a long history of creative ways of pulling teeth. We have done it by drone, squirrel, and today with the fishing line. I’m surprised it worked so well.”
