A 31-year-old Florida woman was knocked out of her boat Saturday on the Suwannee River by a jumping sturgeon. She was taken to a local hospital with two broken arms, a broken collarbone, several broken ribs, a lacerated liver, facial trauma and four missing teeth.
The victim was sitting next to her husband and his 10-year-old son aboard their 17-foot boat. In an instant, she was face down in the water unconscious.
The boat was going about 25 mph. The fish weighed about 70 pounds.
