A wonderful bird is the pelican, his beak holds more than his belly can
A swimmer is recovering after a pelican apparently diving for fish slammed into her face off Florida.
Debbie Shoemaker of Toledo, Ohio, was in the water Thursday near St. Petersburg when the pelican’s beak opened a gash in her face. She needed 20 stitches. The bird died.
The chief of the St. Petersburg Fire Department says he never heard of a diving pelican colliding with anyone. An expert surmises the bird was diving for fish and hit Shoemaker by accident.
