HAHAHAHAHA

She would make a great writer of fiction books! I never thought a person could get on TV for an act of God, and at the mercy of fish! If she fell off the tube and her life jacket was on correct the would've not only saved her neck (pun intended), but kept her a float. I agree with the person that mentioned the local bar!!

I'm going to send the in to the "dummy of the year" award on TV. I know TLC or TRUETV must have some kind of award for this story. This story on with the girl who's trying to raise money for her dead mom at 15 years old! I can't believe this made the news!

We all know the TV stations love to report "news" like this. Bless her heart I bet she called the news station to warn people about the fish, but didn't realize the "pie in the face" she recieved. Everyone knows about carp, but the ones on the news. Fish have no brain and didn't just get together and say to each other "lets just hold this lady under water"! The coverage is clearly are not the same ones at tunica cutoff. Sad!! Most people from the tri-state area would never set foot in those water's just for the nasty water, and hundreds of dead bodies are found out of that spillway. Maybe go to Sardis or one of the cleaner places in the Mississippi area? Shame if this is a sue plot that would rate up there with the McDonalds hot coffee lady. Is the girl on tv the same girl in the picture?

I got this off a faceboook page. I can't believe this chick. Cheap cry for attention,and I agree a lawsuit must be in the works. I hope she gets some good money for this effort. She MUST be embarrassed to have said the "fish were holding me down" after the fact . I wonder if she previewed the airing:)"he grab me around my waist and I coughed up water?" SHE WAS REVIVED?
I didn't even know that place was there and I've lived in Mississippi all my life 33 years!!! Who boats there? It must be a free lake! Maybe someone needs to put the smoking pipe down!!! Honey we hear your WARNING, but most people have the common sence TO STAY AWAY FROM THE TUNICA BOTTOMS!!! TUBING IN THAT NASTY WATER? UGG AND 100'S OF FISH REALLY? That is really the crazy part a cluster of fish can be 20 or 30,b ut 100's of HUGE fish. I agree this is a fish tale alright. Those poor kids on the news the internet?

I watched this on you tube, but they are making so much fun with it I had to come get the real story. Fish tale at it's best, and I thought grandpa had some good ones. The Memphis news is something. If she is sueing hope she buys a nice hairdo!

There's Asian carp in the Mississippi and Wolf River downtown that jump onto towboats all the time.I know guys who'd bring their archery gear to work and bowfish while sitting on the head of a barge the boat was pushing around the Memphis harbor.
Asian carp are edible but I don't know that I'd eat anything coming out of the river downstream from a sewage treatment plant that often has foam coming from its discharge pipe.
Tunica lake isn't that contaminated,though.

They can knock you out and in this case crowd up and not let someone surface for the air that they need.Though I don't know if I've ever heard of any fatalities from being hit by a flying Asian carp,it possible that someone could be injured badly enough to die from those injuries or complications.

Maybe the fish were after the pretty rings on her finger? Some fish love gold maybe she was wearing RINGS on her hand that attracted them? Just a thought. I agree this must be a ploy to sue someone! Someone must know her to have mentioned the local bar~~:)

In what seemed like a scene from a horror movie, hundreds of Asian Carp like the ones shown in a News Channel 3 Outdoors video went on the attack damaging the family's boat and hitting Herrin.

Key word here "like" that is NOT Tunica lake. Very poor sensational umm journalism here. The fish at Tunica lake can't dent your boat. I have been there a number of times, and the fish aren't big enough to dent a boat.

Fished the cutoff today and the flying fish were everywhere. One of these 20 lb monsters striking you at speed would really hurt.
Just duck behind the windshield.
