How one 18 year sea veteran came to be killed by a swordfish in a freak accident. Swordfish that killed, Randy Llanes.

Randy Llanes a Hawaiian fisherman died on Friday after being impaled by a 6ft long swordfish the man had momentarily shot with a speargun.

At the time of the incident, the charter boat captain was in Honokohau Harbor when he spotted the prize swordfish (see Randy licking his chops now…) when he jumped in the water with a speargun.

From there he shot the fish, getting a bullseye. But something went very wrong.

Acting Sgt. David Matsushima of the Kona patrol said the ‘fish got wrapped around a mooring anchor and came back and swam at him,’ impaling the man in the chest with its sharp bill.

According to the Department of Land and Natural Resources: ‘Randy Llanes was pulled by onlookers from the harbor and was unresponsive.’

Responding emergency personnel administered CPR and then took Llanes to Kona Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11.30 am.

Offered a friend of the dead mans, Dale Leverone: ‘Randy has been fishing all his life. He’s a pretty accomplished fisherman. He actually caught a 500-pound marlin yesterday out of his skiff.’

Reiterated Waikiki Aquarium Director Andrew Rossiter via KHON-TV. ‘This is very, very unusual.’

‘There have been a couple of cases documented in the past, but almost always it can be attributed to an unfortunate accident or the fish being injured.’
