The marlin jumped into their boat while they were fishing off the coast of the Dominican Republic.

The aptly-named "Marlin Darlin" crew was trying to reel in the fish...but it did the work for them. The quasi-suicidal marlin leaped into the 62-foot yacht.

"The guys down there are lucky [the marlin] didn't hurt one of them," boat owner Bobby Jacobson said. "There's a piece of teak wood around the side of the boat there called the covering board and [the marlin] put a nice hole about an inch thick and cracked it completely about two feet long. [The fish's snout] could have gone through somebody."

The crew would have released the fish, but it died from, uh, jump-related injuries. Instead, it was given to local fishermen.
