Large Ray Slams Woman on Boat

A ray weighing nearly 300 pounds landed on top of a woman on a boat in the Florida Keys last week, throwing her to the deck and pinning her underneath it.

From CNN:

The woman, Jenny Hausch, was on the chartered boat Friday with her husband and three children, taking pictures of a group of eagle rays as they flew out of the water.

“These eagle rays, they were flying through the air,” said Kelly Klein of Two Chicks Charters. “These giant things go out of the water and slam back down.”

Hausch was in the front of the boat, snapping away, Klein said.

“One of the rays jumped in the air and she gets this perfect shot,” the captain said, adding that rays always jump twice.

On the second jump, one ray hit her in the chest and she fell down, hitting her head, Klein said.

“It keeps slamming and slamming on top of her, trying to swim away,” she said.

    Forget it, I’d have a Heart Attack right then and there, having a giant heavy wet slippery thrashing FISH on top of me!! And if I survived the Heart Attack, I’d be in Therapy for a while trying to get over the constant simulating of frantically prying it off me, like, in my sleep and every time I got near the Grocery Store Seafood Department. Geezz. Wonder if someone at least got a good shot of THAT… it’s crazy.
