I hate when that happens.
An Israeli diver hunting swordfish off the coast of Tel Aviv was [mis]taken for bait, [and] was reportedly attacked by a shoal of his prey and then skewered in the face by one fish's swordlike jaw.
The unlucky fisherman somehow managed to fight free of the angry fish and reach shore, where he was taken to a hospital in the nearby town of Kfar Saba.
The man had a 20-centimetre (eight-inch) section of the fish's 'sword' stuck in his face and protruding from each cheek, the Yediot Aharonot newspaper reported.
That's gotta hurt.
