Family poisoned by fish charged $40,000 for helicopter ride to hospital

Posted:

MANATEE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The medical bills are growing for a Florida family poisoned after eating a fish they caught in the Bahamas.

The four started vomiting non-stop, and they were flown to Miami where doctors recognized the symptoms.

After all that, the Manatee County family was left with a bill of $10,000 for the helicopter to pick each of them up from the Bahamas -- that's a total of $40,000.
