Man Speared by Giant Swordfish

August 8, 2000

ACAPULCO, Mexico - A giant swordfish caught off the coast of Mexico jumped into a fisherman's boat and stabbed the man through his abdomen, a hospital spokesman says.

Spokesmen at the General Hospital in the Pacific resort of Acapulco said Jose Rojas Mayarita, 39, was reeling in a 10-foot marlin on Saturday when the fish leaped from the waves and landed on top of him.

The marlin's spear pierced the fisherman's abdomen and came out the other side. Rojas drifted in his boat for two days, unable to get up, until another vessel rescued him.

He was treated on Monday and remained under observation.
