Florida teen knocked out by fish leaping from river

Published June 3, 2015
Florida wildlife authorities say a teenager was knocked unconscious by a sturgeon jumping from the Suwannee River.

Sturgeon can leap more than seven feet out of the water. The protected fish average 40 pounds.

CBS affiliate WGFL in Gainesville reports the fish arrive in the region this time of year with a population of 10,000-14,000 annually in the region as they migrate out of the Gulf of Mexico.
