Ray leaps and kills woman

CNN just told me that a woman on a boat died after a spotted eagle ray leaped from the water off the Florida Keys Thursday and struck her while she was sitting on the bow of a boat going 25 mph.

The spotted-eagle ray weighed about 75 to 80 pounds and had a six-foot wingspan!

Read the entire disturbing story here.

Meanwhile, I'm going to search YouTube to see if anybody has video of one of these rays flying through the air, which apparently happens all the time - usually without incident.
