Man shot in face with HARPOON gun on fishing trip
They took spear fishing to the next level.
Hugo Pereira da Silva will be a little more careful next time he goes fishing. He last fishing trip, at the Rio Paranaiba dam in Araguari didn't end too well. He was shot in the face with a harpoon and wandered over to the nearest hospital to have it removed.
Judging by the pictures, you can tell that Jugo is lucky to be alive. Whomever fired that hit a direct head shot, but luckily the harpoon entered his head at the perfect spot that would not cause him to end up as shark bait.
Talk about turning a fishing trip into the most dangerous catch.
Someone harpooned a really big catch this time and speared a human!
New York Post reports - “Unfortunately, they were not careful with the positioning, the distance,” Araguari fire department Deputy Lt. Lucenildo Batista Alves told the site. “And the waters of the river in our region are murky, especially in the very dirty rainy season.”
The metal shaft — which was just inches away from causing more serious injuries or even death — was removed and the man was released from a hospital Wednesday.
I can tell they weren't careful. Can you? There's a three foot spear in the guys face like Leonidas from the movie 300 threw it at him.
No problem right? YES THERE'S A PROBLEM!!!
I don't even want to be near a harpoon gun at this rate. You take me fishing and have one of those on the boat, then I'm throwing it overboard. Nope. Not playing games with this and being the end result of a tipsy fisherman.
Hopefully Jugo recovers and makes it back out to the waters for some better fishing.
Try not to be the biggest catch on your own fishing adventures!
Here's a picture of him recovering with the harpoon removed.
