A Fishy Christmas Miracle

When Barbara Woodford discovered her goldfish's bowl was empty, she looked all around for the little guy to no avail. Assuming the worst, Barbara went on to work. When she arrived home some 13 hours later, she found her pet behind a shelf. She got a spatula and was surprised to see his little mouth gasping for air! Quickly, she put Ginger back in his bowl, where the little goldfish went right back to "swimming fabulously."

An spokesperson for the Association of Midland Goldfish Keepers noted that fish can live for quite some time out of the water, so long as their gills remain wet, adding, "But this is the longest I've heard of a goldfish staying alive. It's quite astonishing."
