A Chiefland woman was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville Saturday afternoon after a 70-pound sturgeon jumped out of the Suwannee River and knocked her out of her family’s boat.
Thirty-two-year-old Brianne Megargel was enjoying a relaxing afternoon boat ride on the river with her husband, Stephen, and 10-year-old son, Greyson Elmore, at about 4 p.m. near Manatee Springs when the accident occurred, according to Michael Hart, Megargel's father.
