Who Knew Fishing Was So Dangerous?

In South Florida over the long weekend Jack Wiseman participated in a fishing tournament.  Wiseman is a wounded war vet with a prosthetic arm after losing his real arm while on duty.

During the expedition Wiseman hooked a fish, but the fish fought back with enough force that Wiseman’s prosthetic arm popped off, fell into the water along with his rod and reel all attached to the escaping fish and disappeared under the surface.

But Wiseman was fortunate that the exact same fish was later caught by another fisherman, with his fake arm still attached to it, and had it returned to him.
