Fish Gone Wild: Sturgeon Knocks Man Unconscious

There's some sort of ocean rebellion happening. First we had a blue marlin that speared a fisherman in the chest. Then a whale rammed into a sailboat and capsized it. Now a 4-foot-long sturgeon has jumped out of the water and hit a man, knocking him unconscious.

Blake Nicholas Fessenden, 23, was heading north on the Suwannee River Sunday just north of the Hart Springs Sand Bar when he was hit and fell off the craft, according to a statement from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Next we'll hear that a goldfish jumped out of its bowl and slapped someone in the face!
