HAWAII (NEWS10) – A Hawaiian man is counting his blessings following his bizarre run-in with a giant marlin.
Video shows the marlin’s bill piercing through Russell Ching’s leg. The fish impaled him after he and a few friends managed to hook it during a fishing trip over the weekend.
The spear pinned Ching to the inside of the boat, leaving him trapped under the fish which weighs more than 500 pounds.
Even though the marlin’s bill sliced through his leg it missed all of his major arteries, thankfully.
