I did'nt ever think I'd make a post in this section but this is too remarkable to not share.
I know Ian and can't wait to get his side of the story.
Bear in mind a few facts....
He was literally snatched out of his shoes as the fish rocketed out of the water like a missile and jumped right over the cockpit goring him in the process and landing 15 feet away in the water on the other side of the boat.
I just can't believe that he lived .

The doctor's comments are a little funny though .

Here's the latest on the situation.
Seems he'll be OK , hopefully he won't have any problems with infections.
Sorry , the print version had a photo of Ian and his dad ...
