Fish survives fall from sky, lands outside sushi bar
Talk about a fish out of water...
An equipment worker was leaving a Melbourne restaurant and had just gotten into his truck when, of all things, a fish fell from the sky and landed on his windshield.
Ironically, the restaurant, Chameleons, is a sushi bar.
The fiesty fish likely fell out of the talons or the beak of a bird flying overhead -- and survived.
Amazed, the worker rushed inside the restaurant with his catch to show everyone.
"They brought him into the kitchen, put him in some water, he started flopping around and they said, 'Oh wow, we're going to have fresh sushi because we're a great sushi bar here,' said Angel Pacheco, who works in the restaurant.
"And I said, 'Wait a minute. That's our lucky fish. That doesn't just happen every day. We need to put him in our pond up front so everybody can enjoy him,'" Pacheco told WESH.
