No way, for how long seeds take to germinate and the irritation just water can give you when it goes down the wrong pipe (I choke for at least 5 minutes just moving it out)...it's either a hoax, something else is going on, or he is one tough dude.

Doesn't a plant need light to grow?

Did they remove his lung, then?

Why would a Russian hospital use a ruler that it marked in inches, as it's shown in the picture?

Hmmm.....

I don't know. It does seem like a lot of hoaxes come out of Russia.
