This crew team was just trying to practice when they suddenly found themselves in the middle of a fish storm.

You're looking at the freshman men's crew team for Washington University in St. Louis. The team was just settling in for their Friday morning practice when, all of a sudden, they had fish flying at their faces from every direction.

Specifically, these are Asian carp, an invasive species spreading across the US. They're well-known for being easily spooked by boats and jumping out of the water, which has resulted in cuts, bruises, and broken bones. You can tell how destructive they are when the one guy in the video says, "The fish took my seat off!"

So it might be a dangerous fish, but at least now it'll be comfortable.
