When Stingrays Attack

For the 2nd time in less than seven weeks, a stingray has stabbed a man in the heart with potentially fatal consequences.

The 1st time was a story you've seen over and over again - resulting in the death of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. (click here if you live in a box)

The 2nd time was last week in Florida, and though the 81 year old victim has survived, the story may be freakier than that of Steve Irwin's. In this most recent case, the man was stabbed in the heart (just like Irwin was), but after the stingray first flopped right into the man's boat! That's right - the stingray flopped into the boat, and then stabbed the man in the heart with its razor sharp wiry barbed tale. Apparently, the man was trying to scoop the stingray out of his boat when he was attacked, but it is still too strange. (full story here)

Strange freakish accidents? Do stingrays know what they are doing? Maybe "Bush did it", claims this website... check it out.
