Mackerel Leaps Into Boat, Slashing Angler’s Throat

A 20- to 25-pound narrowbarred mackerel — similar to the Atlantic kingfish — leapt suddenly clear of the water and hit a woman fishing with her husband out of Darwin, Australia, recently.

According to local news reports, Belinda Bingham suddenly lay on the deck with her hand on her throat, attempting to stop the free-flowing blood, and a large mackerel thrashed in the boat. Her husband rushed back to the boat ramp where an ambulance awaited. Bingham is recovering.
