The garfish spike in the kitesurfer’s ankle.

ON MAY 23, kitesurfer Marcos Gomez Mora was in the waters off of Torrevieja when he was involved in an incredible accident; he discovered that he had been speared in the ankle by a fish.

It now appears likely that the attacker was a garfish, which has a long sharp nose and it may have mistaken the board or the kitesurfer as a potential threat, so jumped out of the water in a bid to frighten off the aggressor. By a strange fluke, the spike broke off and embedded itself in the man’s ankle, which required him to attend hospital to have it removed.
