A North Carolina woman has a strange story to tell involving a flying catfish and her broken windshield.

Rhesa Walston said she was driving back to her home in Beaufort, N.C. on Wednesday afternoon when she looked up and saw a bird carrying a huge fish.

"It was one of those slow-motion moments in life. I saw the fish and I saw him drop it,” she said.

That’s right. Nosediving straight for Walton's windshield was a huge catfish.

It happened so quickly she didn’t have time to react. The catfish slammed against her windshield.

"There was glass all over my front seat...glass on my lap,” Walston stated.

She immediately checked on her daughter who was sitting the back seat.

“She just looked up from her tablet and said, 'Your window is broke,' and went right back to her tablet,” Walston explained.

She was able to pull over safely. Then, she realized no one would believe her because it sounded fishy.

"[I] just remember jumping out of my car and thinking I have got to go find the fish because it bounced when it hit my car, 'cause I am thinking who is going to believe me?” Walston said.

The woman and her family tracked down the catfish, obtaining proof that the fish really did fly.

"My husband tried to look up what are the odds of hitting a fish with your car...We could find only one other news story,” she added.

Walston said she is getting her windshield fixed.

She will have to pay the $250 deductible, but Walston explained that she and her family are having a great laugh over the catfish that crashed into her car.
