Tuna Capsizes Boat in US

In case you haven't seen it, check out the media reports of  105 kg tuna which gave Hawaiian fisherman Anthony Wichman the fight of his life.

When Wichman finally hauled the huge tuna on board, his boat capsized under the weight and it got worse from there!

Sky News reports the 54-year-old was thrown into the sea where his leg became caught in the fishing line, dragging him under water.
Wrestling his way free before his breath ran out, Wichman managed to climb back on board the wreckage of his sunken boat where he called his wife. She sent out a distress call to the Coast Guard who sent a helicopter.

Wichman  was taken to hospital with minor injuries while his friends arrived on a second boat to rescue his vessel and tow it back to port and best of all, the tuna was still attached to his line.
