An online blogger Zhang Moumou, nicknamed Qi Qi, was arrested by Chinese authorities several days after she nearly died when she put an electric eel into her vagina.
Qi Qi needed surgery to get the eel removed from her body. After the surgery, she posted a picture of her new scar on the internet, which quickly went viral.
When police realized what happened, they came to arrest Qi Qi. China has a strict anti-porn policy.
