    Ray slams woman on boat in Florida Keys
    By Kimberly Segal, CNN
    March 29, 2011 10:18 a.m. EDT


    The eagle ray weighed as much as 300 pounds


    ..."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....




    Yikes! Thank God she's ok!

    The poor woman must have been scared out of her wits. I can't even imagine....

    That said, what a magnificent animal! All I can feel is wonder when I look at it. Also, can I get a sheet set in that pattern?


    Thanks, steel.

    It is a beautiful animal but I'd imagine you wouldn't be admiring the beauty as it pounded you into the deck of the boat.
