VIDEO: Passenger Dives To Stop Fishing Pole From Snagging Bishop and Royal Family

If you watched The 904 Now's Facebook page Sunday afternoon, you got a front row seat to the blessing of the fleet, from the cathedral to the marina.

One thing you may have noticed is that some of the boats came very close to the dock, with a couple even making contact, while Bishop Felipe J. Estevez was on an elevated platform, in already windy conditions.

At one point during the ceremonies, one boater forgot they had a fishing pole, angled out of the boat, pointing directly at the Bishop, and the crowd.

After a few members of the crowd point out the fishing poles, a passenger on the boat dove to save the faces of the Bishop, and the children of St. Augustine's "royal family."
