SINGAPORE - A regular fishing trip to Pasir Ris on May 22 turned extraordinary when one of the anglers caught a giant stingray, estimated to weigh around 100kg.

Akid, 33, said he and his friends were surprised with his catch.

According to Chinese evening newspaper Shin Min Daily News, the six men struggled for more than two hours trying to reel the stingray in but it was in vain. A child and his friends had to wade into the water to drag the stingray to shore.

The men wanted to release the stingray after taking photos of it, but it had died.
