Watch out for falling fish

August 13, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A woman in Ohio is telling a fish story about one that got away -- from a bird, and damaged her car.

Authorities in northwest Ohio say the fish -- a Lake Erie freshwater drum, known as a sheepshead -- smashed a car windshield Tuesday when an eagle dropped its catch from a height of about 40 feet.

Leighann Niles said the impact felt like a brick hitting her Toyota's windshield.

The woman from the Cleveland suburb of South Euclid was vacationing along the lake in Marblehead.
