Pelican Commits Suicide on Woman's Face


In a case of extreme bad luck for both the animal and the human, a Pelican was killed as it plummeted to the waters in a classic dive to nab a fish ... only to plow into someone's face! Debbie Shoemaker gave one of the understatements of the year when she called being struck by the pelican "a most unpleasant surprise". Twenty stiches on the face definitely qualifies as unpleasant. The pelican could not be reached for comment as it had passed on to pelican-heaven.
Following the unprecedented incident, she was immediately taken to a local hospital where doctors needed 20 stitches to close the gash in her face, the Associated Press reported.

Paramedics from the St. Petersburg Beach Fire Department, who transported the woman to the hospital, were very surprised by the event. The agency’s chief actually said he had never heard of a pelican crashing into a person before.

Unfortunately, the pelican died after the crash due to the intense impact. According to a marine expert, it was looking for food and hit Shoemaker by accident. Pelicans grow to up to 30lb (13kg) and can dive from heights of 60 to 70 feet (18 to 21 meters). (ref)
