Washington University of Rowing Team Surprised by Flying Asian Carp

The scene was Creve Coeur Lake outside of St. Louis, and the Washington University of rowing team, were out practicing on the lake. As the boat got near the dock, the splashing started, and suddenly a swarm of Asian Carp emerged from the water and went on the attack, some even got into the boat.

One member Devin Patel, described the moment of terror: "The fish was flopping on my legs. They were so slippery that I couldn't get a grip on them." He screamed to a teammate, Yoni David, "get them off me!"

Fortunately, no one was hurt during the ordeal, but the strong smell of fish lingered afterward.
