      Fish kills spear-fishing diver
      1 hour, 11 minutes ago

      A Florida diver shot a large grouper with a spear gun then
      apparently drowned when the fish sped into a hole, entangling the
      man in the line attached to the spear, investigators said Monday.

      The 42-year-old man, whose name was withheld, was free-diving in
      about 25 feet of water off the lower Florida Keys Saturday and
      speared a Goliath Grouper, Monroe County Sheriff's Detective Mark
      Coleman said.

      "It looks like the fish wrapped the line attached to the spear
      around the victim's wrist. The fish then went into a hole in a coral
      rock, effectively pinning the man to the bottom of the ocean,"
      Coleman said in a news release.

      Police divers found the speared fish tightly wedged into the hole,
      with the man's body still tangled in the line, a sheriff's
      spokeswoman said.

      Goliath Grouper are the largest members of the sea bass family and
      can weigh hundreds of pounds.
