Fisherman Samples Floating Cocaine Brick, Dies

Posted: August 3, 2011 by Keith Stone in Miami, ridiculous

I’ve only been in Miami for a little bit, but even I know Rule #1: if you find cocaine floating in the ocean, do not snort it. Unfortunately for Thomas Swindal, he did not heed this rule. He and his brother Kenneth were fishing when they landed a brick of cocaine. Nice catch, but Thomas, who must be some sort of genius, couldn’t resist having a little taste. About 90 minutes later, he went crazy, throwing equipment off the boat and even damaging the engine. The brothers were helped to shore and Thomas was sent to the hospital, where he later died. Rule #1, kids. At least the first three-quarters of the fishing trip went well. LeBron would be proud.
