Fish spears man in eye and pierces brain
November 24, 2005
FISHERMAN Adnan Walid, 39, died after a swordfish leapt out of the water and stabbed him in the eye.
Mr Adnan (above left), a father of two, had been fishing with a friend in the sea off Pulau Langkawi on Saturday.
His wife, Madam Mariah Abdullah, 34, said that the two men went out in her husband's boat at about 8pm.
She told the Malaysian papers: 'It all happened when Adnan was flashing his torchlight in the water.'
Suddenly, the friend heard Adnan screaming for help.
A swordfish had jumped out of the water and stabbed him in his right eye.
The sharp part of the fish's mouth was about 30cm long and was as thick as an adult's big toe.
It entered Mr Adnan's right eye, just missed the eyeball and then pierced part of his brain.
By the time the friend rushed over, Mr Adnan had already pulled the fish out, but part of the mouth broke off, and a piece remained lodged in his head.
Mr Adnan collapsed soon after and was rushed to Langkawi Hospital.
He was later transferred to the Alor Star Hospital where he died on Monday at about 4pm without regaining consciousness.
Mr Adnan's friend, who declined to be named told reporters: 'It was a freak accident.
'We've heard of people being injured by the fish, but I think this is the first time I've heard of someone being killed. It is unusual.'
TRIED TO STOP DAD
Madam Mariah said that their two children, Mohd Salleh, 14, and Bukhari, 12, had tried to stop their father from going fishing on Saturday.
She said: 'He was preparing to go out at 8pm when they clung to him and begged him to stay at home as the wind was too strong.
