Fanning Springs, Florida, June 1: A sturgeon jumped into a boat on a Florida river and broke a 25-year-old woman's leg.
Witnesses say the fish was about 5- to 6-feet (about 1 1/5 meters) long and weighed about 60- to 75-pounds (30 kilograms).
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers say Tina Fletcher was a passenger in an airboat Sunday when the sturgeon jumped and hit her leg.
