Kenny DorsetDirector of Social MediaAugust 25, 2013

A 350-pound blue marlin nearly takes out a fisherman when it jumps into the boat off the coast of the Dominican Republic. 

According to the CNN newswire, via CBS 19 in Cleveland, the fishermen were planning to release the fish back into the water but couldn't since it died of "self-sustained" injuries. They gave it to local fishermen instead. 

Thanks to Business Insider for the find.
