28 pound carp slaps kayaker

Flying carpHeard of the man who got slapped by a fish? He is a 44-year old lawyer of Houston who was participating in the Missouri River 340 event, a kayak race in Kansas City, when suddenly a missile came and hit him from the blue – it was the blue of the Missouri river and the missile was a 13-Kg silver carp!!  13kg is 28 pounds.

The force of the attack would have capsized the kayak and thrown him into the swirling deep waters but, fortunately, the kayak did not overturn. He had to withdraw from the race due to a severe pounding in his head. These jumping silver carps are known to have injured many people who had ventured out to boat or fish in the Missouri.
