Woman Hit In Face By Eagle Ray

The last thing one expects when navigating the waters of the Florida Keys is to be hit in the face with a Platypus. Being hit by a Spotted Eagle Ray may make more sense but is still sufficiently weird and tragic that I felt the need to post a link to the story.

I'd like to think we have free reign on the outcome of our lives. I'd hate to think some vengeful entity spins a wheel of doom to decide the ultimate fate for each of us and just past flaming fondue accident, bitten by rabid Pomeranian or choking on a corn hit in the face by a Spotted Eagle Ray. It has to be one of the stupidest ways to die. I feel terribly for both the woman and the ray.

  1. Yup. I personally fear "tragic gardening mishap" and "fresca-related fatality."

    That's very sad for everyone. The ray incident, I mean.

    I need a nap.

  2. yes I heard about that on the news the other day. Very sad that this is how she'll be remembered.

    Nice spin


  3. Speaking of Fresca - I held Steve DeBerg's Fresca in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers locker room in 1983. It's not death related so much but I do wish Lee Roy Selmon had been wearing a towel.
