Barracuda leaps into boat, attacks Florida teen
Rob Parker was fishing for shark and barracuda in the Gulf of Mexico about 4 miles off the coast of Venice, FL when a 45-inch barracuda leapt into the boat and clamped onto his 14-year-old daughter’s arm. Wira Parker’s injuries required 51 stitches. “It was like out of ‘Jaws,’ it was that scary,” said mother Dina Parker. “It was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever been through. I’ve never been so scared in my life.” Herald Tribune.
