A Hawaii man was killed Friday morning after getting impaled in the torso by a swordfish.
Randy Llanes, 47, had jumped into Kailua-Kona’s Honokohau Harbor while holding a spear gun, in an apparent attempt to catch the swordfish, witnesses said.
Then he was dead in the water.
“All we know is the next thing they know, the man is seen floating,” said West Hawaii Acting Battalion Chief John Whitman of Hawaii County's fire department.
Llanes had tried to shoot the swordfish and somehow got punctured in his right upper torso, officials said. He was rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead there.

Whitman said this isn’t the first swordfish slaying he has encountered.
“They are very aggressive animals," he said. "If you mess with them they defend themselves pretty good.”

Not too often you hear of someone getting killed by the fish. Poor guy.
