Snapped bones, blood sucking leeches, and a pencil in the lung? Sound like something out of a horror movie? Think again. Witness some of the most extreme real-life emergency room cases on Discovery Fit & Health's all-new series BIZARRE ER.

Snapped Bones

U.S. Premiere: Saturday, July 16 at 10:30PM ET/PT

A man gets a fishing weight buried inside his eye socket; a round of arm wrestling snaps one man's upper limb like a twig; and a man severs his spine.

Blood-Sucking Leeches

A fisherman is in danger when an anchor is swung into his groin; surgeons operate on a five-year-olds nose to remove a life-threatening lego; a man's foot is engulfed by pus-filled boils; and a boy ends up with toes on his hands due to a freak accident.

An Extreme Fracture

A shoemaker stitches up her thumb; a boy melts his pants as he tries to put out a sparkler; and a toilet falls off the back of a truck onto a man's foot.

Animal Attacks

U.S. Premiere: Saturday, July 30 at 10:30PM ET/PT

A vet is attacked by a cat during a routine neutering; chef eyes are mysteriously being fried in the kitchen; a man is gored by a cow; and a keg falls on a bartender's foot.

A Pencil in the Lung

A boy walks around for six weeks not knowing a pencil has punctured his lung; a prized dog breaks his owner's nose; a man's ear is bitten off in a fight; a patient's body is engulfed by giant red spots; and a builder splits his knee in half.
