Holy Flying Stingrays Batman!

 

A 55 year old woman, while vacationing in Marathon Key FL, has died today after a spotted eagle ray jumped out of the water and struck the woman while she was sunbathing with her husband and children.

Officials are not clear at this moment if the woman died from falling backwards, sustaining a blow to the head, or being stung by the ray.

Jorge Pino said, "The chances of this occurring are so remote that most of us are completely astonished that this happened."
