Avid fishermen Jason Frost and Brandon Key were watching the sun rise over the Warrior River one Saturday morning in August of 2015. Only still waters and tree-lined riverbanks surrounded them as they cast their lines.
That serenity was soon broken when the pair heard a strange noise. “We were sitting there, fishing, facing the bank,” Frost described to BuzzFeed News. “Then, behind us, we hear a splash.”
The fisherman, of course, had come up with a simple explanation for the noise before he examined it further. “I thought it was a fish jumping out of the water,” he said. But then, he turned around and looked closer.
