A 10-Year-Old Girl Survived an Alligator Attack by Prying its Jaws Open

A 10-year-old girl was swimming in a lake near Orlando on Saturday when she
got attacked by an ALLIGATOR. But she’s alive because she’s a total bad*** .
. .
The alligator that attacked her was about nine feet long, and latched onto
her left thigh. But luckily, she recently went to a wildlife park in Orlando
called Gatorland, and learned what to do if you’re ever attacked by one.

Most people would probably assume that poking it in the EYE would be your
only chance. But she learned that’s NOT actually right.

Instead she punched it in the NOSE, which is what you’re supposed to do.
That stunned it for a few seconds . . . and she was able to use her hands to
pry its JAWS open and escape.

She ended up with some puncture wounds on her leg, but it looks like she’ll
be fine. Wildlife officials caught the alligator. Unfortunately it has to
be euthanized.

Two experts from Gatorland posted a Facebook video on Monday, and said she
did exactly what you’re supposed to do if you ever get attacked.
