NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio —
A video showing a teen catching a three-foot carp with his hands on a flooded street in northern Ohio is going viral Wednesday.
Cleveland TV station WKYC reports that 16-year-old Jake Sawyer caught a grass carp estimated to be 3 feet long and weighing 40 pounds.
“The neighbors they pointed out, they saw, like bubbles and stuff moving around over here,” Sawyer told WKYC. “Then eventually we saw the fish actually surface and we saw how big it was.”
Luke Sawyer shot the video while his brother grabbed the carp, also known as a white amur, with his bare hands and carried it to a nearby pond.
