This is the perfect nightmare scenario: going for a wild underwater ride impaled on the bill of a marlin.......

.....Tournament organiser Dan Jacobs said: 'Fish have jumped into boats before and people have been hurt dealing with marlin, but it's very unusual for a fish to leap completely out of the water from behind the boat and come right across the boat.'

OUCH! make that a double billing, please......

There was a near fatal in Flordia a few years ago. Two boats were tied together during "cocktail hour", when a huge cuda came out of the water and across the deck of both boats. A woman with martini in hand was horribly bitten by the airborne cuda while standing on the rear deck. The bite severed the femoral artery and the only thing that saved her was the luck of a USCG copter that was doing drills in the area ..... with the medics aboard.
