Fish jumps in boat, man jumps out

A video of a fisherman diving overboard after a huge marlin jumps into his boat is going viral online.

Nearly 670,000 people have watched the clip which shows three men fishing when the big fish suddenly leaps into their boat.

As the marlin thrashes violently around, one of the fishermen panics and dives overboard to avoid being hurt by the creature's spear-like snout.

The man can be seen bobbing about in the water as the boat slows down and he swims towards it.

The man is pulled back onboard the boat as the Marlin continues to flap around.
