A teenager in Arkansas is nursing a broken jaw after he was struck by a silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) while riding around a local lake in an inner tube (the inner tube was being towed by a speedboat). While this might strike some of you as odd (and painful), those of you who are familiar with the tendency of the Asian carp to jump out of the water when startled are likely not surprised. The Arkansas News Bureau has the full story.
