KEY WEST, Fla. -- A woman is hospitalized after being bitten in the chest by a barracuda while kayaking in the Florida Keys.

The Coast Guard says the 45-year-old woman and a male companion were kayaking Sunday evening near Big Pine Key when the fish jumped into the vessel and bit her. The man told emergency dispatchers that he could not row the two-person kayak to shore without causing further harm to the woman.

The Coast Guard says paramedics administered first aid to the woman, who appeared to have suffered a possible punctured lung and broken ribs.

The woman was transported to shore and flown to a Miami hospital in stable condition.

    • Try using a spider hitch in the braid first then tie the leader onto it. Doubles the size of the braid in the knot to the leader.
