Leaping Stingray Kills Woman

A vacationing American woman died after a leaping stingray hit her in the face, knocking her off her feet.

Judy Kay Zagorski of Michigan was boating with her family last Friday when the stingray leapt into the boat, striking her. Losing her balance, she fell and struck her head. She never recovered and was pronounced dead later. The stingray also died.

Immediate inquiry proved Mrs. Zagorski was not stung by the stingray's barb; this was simply a freak accident. Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, died when his heart was pierced by a barb from a stingray.
