|Flying Fish Attacked Skipper And Son On Boat
San Diego, Aug. 8.—Flying fish by thousands attacked Captain Selley and son of the lobster launch Audrey, just off the Coronado Islands, Saturday, according to reports brought here yesterday. As a result, Captain Selley is suffering a badly bruised head and his son is nursing numerous sore spots and cuts and bruises.
The men were engaged in pulling in their lobster nets at night, when the school of winged fish arose like a cloud from the water. They were attracted by a bright light aboard the launch and the occupants of the boat were completely enveloped by the strange denizens of the deep.
