WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOLF BALLS ATTACK? FIND OUT ON DISCOVERY FIT & HEALTH'S NEW SERIES "BIZARRE ER"

--All-New Series BIZARRE ER Airs Saturdays at 10PM ET/PT Beginning July 16 on Discovery Fit & Health--

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. The series goes behind-the-scenes to explore extraordinary and mind-boggling emergency room adventures. BIZARRE ER premieres on Discovery Fit & Health on Saturday, July 16 at 10PM ET/PT, with new episodes airing every Saturday at 10PM ET/PT.

Discovery Fit & Health has acquired four seasons of BIZARRE ER, which originally aired on BBC3 in the UK. The first season of BIZARRE ER features the following U.S. premiere episodes to air on Discovery Fit & Health throughout July and August:

When Golf Balls Attack

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

A golfer smashes the ball straight into his girlfriend's teeth; a student gets trapped under an engine transmission; and a man falls into an industrial cement mixer.

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

U.S. Premiere: Saturday, July 23 at 10PM ET/PT

A man slips with his scissors and gouges his groin; and bloodsucking leeches are stuffed into a woman's mouth to keep alive a transplanted tongue.

Anchors Awry

U.S. Premiere: Saturday, July 23 at 10:30PM ET/PT

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

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

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

U.S. Premiere: Saturday, August 6 at 10PM ET/PT

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.
