From the Naples Daily News:
Judy Kay Zagorski, of Pigeon, Mich., was sitting in the front seat of a boat going 25 mph when a spotted eagle ray that weighed about 75 pounds and had a wingspan of 5 to 6 feet flew out of the water. The collision . . . likely killed the 57-year-old woman, [as] she did not appear to have any puncture wounds from the ray’s barbs. An autopsy will determine an official cause of death. . . .
The stingray. . . also . . . died as a result of the impact. Zagorski’s blood and the animal’s blood were both found in the boat, officials said._
