Giant blue marlin nearly impales fisherman

A fisherman was nearly speared by a 350lb blue marlin when out fishing in waters near the coast of the Dominican Republic.

Boat owner Bobby Jacobsen caught the spectacle on camera when the huge fish leapt onto the 62-foot vessel.

The crew of the Marlin Darlin rushed to the deck where the huge fish was thrashing violently.

Despite their efforts to return the threatened species to the sea, the fish later died of its injuries.
