Fish steals prosthetic arm in Florida tournament

Wounded veteran Jack Wiseman lost more than the catch of the day in a fishing tournament in South Florida over Memorial Day weekend. A fish pulling extra hard on his reel popped out his prosthetic arm, Fort Myers, Fla., TV station WINK reported.

"All of a sudden the hand snapped off the prosthetic device, still hooked to the rod, and the rod and the reel and the hand went down into the water," Wiseman told St. Petersburg, Fla., TV station Bay News 9.
