I just heard this on the radio. She was on a boat sunbathing, a 75lb stingray "flew" into the boat and hit her. She then hit her head on something in the boat. They can't find any puncture wounds as of yet and think that what killed her is when she hit her head. They're still investigating. Rick

Maybe the stingray hit her in the head with a brass hammer, then threw it overboard!
Look for a upcoming episode of this on CSI Miami!

That is the river I ski on!! If you stay in the channel, you don't have much problem. Also the metal boats seem to stir them up more than fiberglass.

I've read an article in a fishing magazine where a similar accident happened to a guy going along in his fishing boat. I think it was decades ago though.

Personally, I have seen cow nosed rays breach before.
