Sailfish leaps out of water, injures woman off Florida coast

A 70-year-old woman was stabbed by the bill of a 100-pound sailfish that leapt out of the water and attacked her as her companions were trying to reel it in on a boat near the Florida coast.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office says the sailfish stabbed the Maryland woman in the groin area with its pointed bill on Tuesday while she was standing in the boat as two companions tried to bring it in on a fishing line about two miles offshore from Stuart, Florida.

The companions applied pressure to the wound, and the woman was taken to Stuart for medical treatment.
