‘Outrageous fortune’ certainly applies here:
A woman from the Thumb died after a large stingray leaped from the water off the Florida Keys on Thursday and struck her in the head while she was on a fishing boat with her family, officials said.
It’s akin to seeing Samuel L. Jackson disappear in a flash of shark flesh , except the shark was trying to commit aquatic murder. The stingray was just doing what stingrays do and happened to hit a human in mid-flight before dropping as dead as the human did.
I’m not even going to make a comparison to Steve Irwin.
Interestingly enough, while googling this little bit of oceanic Warner Brothers cartoon tragedy, I did find another bout of fatal involvement with stingrays of another sort here . . . .
