Jennifer and David Hausch have quite a story to tell from their Florida vacation after a huge ray jumped into their tour boat, striking Jennifer.

The Crystal Lake couple was on an eco-tour boat ride Friday in Florida when a 200 pound spotted eagle ray struck her in the chest. She was not injured, according to wildlife officials.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation team had to tie a rope around the huge fish to pull it back into the water. The eagle ray is protected in Florida waters. It is not considered dangerous to humans.
