A swordfish which swam its way to the shallow waters of a beach in Chalkida on the Greek Island of Evia, was killed by beachgoers.

The swordfish went to the shallow water to give birth.
At first, the bathers panicked as they thought the fish was a shark and immediately ran out of the water. However, when it was discovered that it was a swordfish, they began to chase it and throw objects at it which resulted in its death.
