The marlin nearly speared one fisherman, but he leapt out of the way.

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.
