A 35-year old man in Florida was killed when a duck flew into his face and knocked him off his speeding watercraft into a lake. The boat was travelling at about 55MPH.
A friend was watching the man from the shore. He turned away for just a moment, and when he looked back, saw he was not in the boat. He found the man in the lake and tried to revive him, but was too late. The duck's corpse was also recovered.
The official cause of death is listed as blunt trauma to the head, followed by drowning.
