VIDEO: Asian carp jump around boat

A shocking video features dozens of Asian carp jumping out of a river and bombarding a boat on the Spoon River in Illinois when, all of a sudden, they're deluged by the flying fish.

By the end of the trip, they had 70 fish inside their boat.

The 70-second clip shows a family travelling down the river, which is heavily populated by Asian carp, an invasive species that leap when startled by something such as a boat engine.

While the clip was originally uploaded last November, it’s one that has to be seen to be believed.
