Video: Anglers in Boat Nearly Struck by Low-flying Plane


The start of the 40th annual Surubí National Festival in Argentina—a world-famous fishing extravaganza—was nearly marred by tragedy earlier this week when a low-flying plane almost crashed into an angler’s boat.

The plane passes by at around the 0:38 mark.
