t's a plot point from Arrested Development come true—a fisherman in south Florida was participating in a fishing tournament when a fish pulled too hard on his reel, and his prosthetic arm popped out.
As one J. Walter Weatherman might say, "That's why you never pull on your pole." Or something like that...
Thankfully, it wasn't gone for good, but Jack Wiseman, a wounded war veteran, watched the arm float off and sink into the sea. The captain of the boat Wiseman was fishing from attempted to stop the fish from getting away, but was unsuccessful.
Luckily, later on that day, another fisherman caught the same fish, and the arm was miraculously still with the fish, so the fisherman returned the arm to Wiseman.
