Sea life revenge

A 73-year-old woman was stabbed by a sailfish during a fishing trip two miles offshore of the coast of southeast Florida. As an angler attempted to reel the fish in, it leapt out of the water and stabbed the woman where she was standing next to the boat’s center console. She was reported to be in good condition. In another incident, a humpback whale breached and landed on a small boat off the coast of Plymouth, Massachusetts. The bow of the 19-foot vessel submerged under the weight of the whale, then popped back up. No one was hurt during the incident and the boat was determined to be seaworthy.
