Hawaiian fisherman killed by swordfish that speared him back
The captain of a charter boat on Big Island was so excited to spot a swordfish in the water nearby, he jumped in to try and spear it. The 6ft long swordfish speared him back with its sharp bill before it died, in the chest.
He was pulled unresponsive from the water and could not be resuscitated.
"He was a tough guy, he was such a tough guy that everyone's scared of him, the whole harbor's scared of him," Kalina Llanes, the man's sister-in-law, told the station.
She added that those who knew him well were "not scared of him because he has such a big heart."

Very sad. I'm reminded of what happened to Steve Irwin."Two eyes are not enough, if one desires to accomplish anything." - Marie Bashkirtseff
