View Full Version : Stingray Jumps In Boat And Kills Woman!

21st Mar 2008, 07:21
BBC Radio 4 News at 07:00 reported that a stingray jumped into a boat in the Florida Keys, knocking a woman down.

The unfortunate woman sustained a head injury an died!

No news on how the stingray is, (probably be charged! with homicide and piracy).

How can they prove intent?

What was the motive?

Womanslaughter at worst.

Why is slaughter spelt the same way as laughter?

Were the poms pissed when they thought up this language??? Or was it the queen?

Is this the next fishy tale? Was she in a pun-t?

Will Troy Tempest be charged with homicide?

21st Mar 2008, 11:20
Victims name...Marina??

Poor fish has not a ray of hope, but at least it was not caught hook line and sinker.

How can they prove intent?

I think that they will grill it to find out.

Sounds like she haddock a chance...

Could someone explain how a stingray "jumps" - they don't have any legs to stand on, just like this story perhaps...? Unless of course, airplanes really do jump into the air as opposed to uhmmm, gracefully lifting off or hopping, rotating or whatever...:confused:

21st Mar 2008, 16:22
Maybe the Stingray was on a conveyor belt . . .

21st Mar 2008, 16:24
was it a 1963 split window stingray? must have been a helluva run...

21st Mar 2008, 17:03
Obviously didn't know it's plaice.

21st Mar 2008, 17:30
Did the "stingray" jump up and hit the woman repeatedly? Because it just might have been a parrot-fish in this case...?! :):uhoh:

21st Mar 2008, 17:41
uh...maybe stingrays do fly?!? :eek:

First Steve Irwin, now this woman - it's a crazed psycho stingray serial killer, I tell you ... Jaws was a wimp compared to this guy!

Call in SSHU, quick (Special Stingray Homicide Unit) to profile it, although I suspect its profile will be a bit flat.

I'm just going to skate over this subject.

Wels, I must say I think it's the only thing to do.

I bet the lawyers will want to feather their own nests over it. They won't need much egging on.
There may be a ray of hope if there isn't an ocean of media coverage.
