Philippines: Two Dead from Sea Cucumber
Two people died while
four others are in critical condition in Cebu after eating a fried sea
cucumber delicacy on Saturday, a report said. The sea cucumber, a
herbivore, is not known for being poisonous but it secretes blue ink from
its skin which is potentially lethal to any predators.
According to one
official - "Something must have gone wrong when [the victims]
prepared the food."
