    A Long Island fisherman has died after a freak accident in which a weighted lure hit him in the eye and lodged in his brain.

    Jaime Chicas, 21, was angling on some rocks at Jones Beach at about 8 p.m. Friday when his line snapped back and a 3-ounce sinker recoiled violently, penetrating his eye socket and hitting his brain.

    Chicas' brother-in-law Jose Gonzalez, was about 30 feet away when he heard Chicas groaning.

    "We were just sitting there. It was pretty tranquil, kind of getting dark," Gonzalez told The Post. "We didn't see anything, but then my cousin and I both heard him groaning. We ran to him and he was down, lying on the rocks."

    "There was so much blood. We could see something had gone in his eye."


    Chicas was pronounced brain dead Tuesday at Nassau University Medical Center.

    He leaves behind a baby and a 19-year-old wife in El Salvador. He had come to the United States illegally about a year ago and was looking for work in Long Island.
    Talk about a freak accident.

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    Sometimes God dillies and dallies and sometimes he just points at you and says "Hang up your jock."

    God tried to warn him:
    Chicas, a native of Lolotiquillo Morazán, El Salvador, had moved in with his sister, Nohemy, 27, and Gonzalez last year.

    On Sunday mornings, he played soccer at Cantiague Park in Hicksville, where five men in the same soccer league were hit by lightning on Sunday, Gonzalez said.

    I have a strong stomach but this version of the story is pretty upsetting:

    Good Lord! The worst I ever had happen (aside from getting one in my hair) was a totally minor trout hook to the shoulder. I just ripped the thing out before anybody could get to me with wire cutters. It was tiny and inconsequential.

    Oh, don't go all liberal on us. Freak accident. How many times have you heard of this ever happening before? Anglers are more likely to die from drowning than something like this.
    OPEACHMENT NOW!!!
