    An elusive giant fish which inspired stories of sea monsters has been filmed by a tourist - before killing itself. The massive 15ft oarfish was spotted swimming in shallow waters in the Sea of Cortez in Mexico. Tour guides from Un-Cruise Adventures, who organised the expedition, were thrilled to get up close to the mysterious creature. However, after briefly delighting onlookers with its appearance the oarfish deliberately beached itself on nearby Isla San Francisco and died.
