A man fishing off the coast of Bermuda was wounded in a very bizarre incident: the fish jumped out of the water and hooked him instead.
[Ian] Card and his father, Alan, both operators of a charter fishing boat and experienced marlin fishermen, had just hooked the fish Saturday when it suddenly leapt out of the water, impaled Ian Card just below his collar bone and knocked him into the ocean.
The fishermen estimated the marlin at about 800 pounds (363 kilograms) and about 14 feet (4.3 meters) in length.
Remarkably, he (the fisherman) made it back to shore and is recovering.
I can see the made-for-TV movie title now: “The Old Man and the Sea: Nature Fights Back”.
