Who said South Florida was safe? Not I! You know it’s bad when you continuously have to watch your surroundings in a busy nightlife where gunshots are as typical as fireworks on the Fourth of July. And it’s not uncommon to see club bouncers dump bodies outside of clubs in empty alleys after ecstasy overdoses. To sum it up, in South Beach the phrase “party till you die” is not a figure of speech, but also, if not careful, a possible outcome. So where does one go when they need to have some peace and quiet? Well thankfully we have a world of peaceful resources also known as the Everglades and the Florida Keys. They are our peaceful escape when Miami living gets a little too hectic. Unfortunately the fish in this area are not happy about the unexpected peace-seekers and are claiming their territory. Just the other day a woman was kayaking through the serene mangroves of Big Pine Key and was brutally stabbed…by a fish. The fish, a 5-foot long Needlefish, jumped out of the water and punctured the girl’s back, collapsing a lung. It might sound crazy and ridiculous, but hey, it’s South Florida!
