WATCH: College rowing team under attack from giant flying carp

The young men on the freshman crew team of Washington University in St. Louis got a little more than they bargained for during a practice session at the weekend.

While out rowing on Creve Coeur Lake their boat was besieged by giant Asian Carp leaping from the water all round them.

We’re laughing, cos it’s damn funny, but we’re pretty sure if we found ourselves stuck on a small boat with dozens of worryingly big fish flying around our heads we’d be doing quite a bit of screaming ourselves.
