12:05Swordfish kills fisherman who was trying to catch it in Hawaii
A fishing boat captain has died after being gored by a swordfish in a harbour in Hawaii. Randy Llanes, 47, spotted the 3ft-long fish in the water in Honokohau Harbor, in Kailua-Kona, and dived in with his speargun.
He shot the creature and the fish began thrashing around and speared him in the upper chest with its 3ft-long bill.
A police spokesman said the speared fish "got wrapped around a mooring anchor, came back and swam at him".
Mr Llanes, who ran chartered big game fishing trips from the marina, was pulled from the water by onlookers.
He was taken by ambulance to Kona Community Hospital, but doctors could not save him.
Officials found the dead fish near yachts, and said it weighed around 40lb.
