What is it with flying fish lately? First, there’s the mako leaping into a boat in Texas and in Florida a tourist gets whacked by an airborne ray. From this story on

Jennifer and David Hausch have quite a story to tell from their Florida vacation after a huge ray jumped into their tour boat, striking Jennifer. The Crystal Lake couple was on an eco-tour boat ride Friday in Florida when a 200 pound spotted eagle ray struck her in the chest. She was not injured, according to wildlife officials. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation team had to tie a rope around the huge fish to pull it back into the water. The eagle ray is protected in Florida waters. It is not considered dangerous to humans.

Are the fishes of the world taking a cue from the Asian carp? Anyone have a similar flying fish story?
