Drone footage catches man being attacked by gator
 

 
A 34-year-old Florida man described in harrowing detail how he survived a brush with death when he was attacked by a 12 ft alligator earlier this month, noting how he felt everything from the “scales” to the “teeth” of the reptile break his skin.

“That thing was huge. That thing wasn’t a little gator,” said Juan Carlos La Verde during an interview with ABC Action News recently, describing how he was perhaps better equipped at keeping his body calm from his days spent working as a US Air Force Pararescueman.

The attack happened while the 34-year-old Oldsmar firef*ghter was filming a promo on 3 August for his adventure training company, DefeatX, a stunt that found himself swimming through Lake Thonotosassa, an 839-acre body of water located about 20 miles northeast of Tampa.

The vicious attack was captured in drone footage by Mr La Verde’s company as he was training for a triathlon.

The firef*ghter noted during his first sit-down interview with the news outlet since the attack that he had been in a bit of a rush that day, and outside of these circumstances, he’d have normally exercised more caution before entering the lake he knew to be a natural habitat for the large predators.

“This time, I was just in a rush to get it done just because I was so focused to get it done that I forgot my swim cap. I forgot my goggles,” Mr La Verde said.

Without much time to react, the adventure trainer says he immediately understood what was happening when he felt the gator’s jaws clamp down on his body mid-stroke, a terrifying scene that was all captured on drone footage by a friend who was a*sisting with the shoot.

After a struggle with the giant predator, Mr La Verde says at some point the creature’s bite let go of him, releasing his bleeding head and limbs from the jaws in what he suspects was out of confusion rather than fear.

“It was confused just as I was confused, and then it just let go,” he said.

After struggling with the alligator, Mr La Verde had his next hurdle to survive: swimming back to shore and getting medical attention for the severe wounds he sustained to his head and jaw.

A Good Samaritan who found the man on the side of the lake’s shore offered to drive him to Tampa General Hospital, and while inside the car, Mr La Verde dialled 911 himself to alert the trauma team that he was on his way from suffering a serious alligator attack.

Homie lucky to be alive.

I'm not from Florida but everyone I know from Florida says you absolutely can't swim in bodies of water like this because it is knows that there are gators.

Bruh, that;s why I highlighted that. He sitting there watchin his homie bout to get done in and he just kept the film rolling. Not only that but he didn't even run check on him and ride him to the hospital?



After I healed up, he would be catchin some hands.

He probably wanted dude's wife for himself. So he had 2nd thoughts about saving him.

Hey but in all honesty, how the hell did he get out of the gators jaw?! Those things are basically a death trap. He’s lucky to survive.

Duke in OP is lucky it got him where it did. As crazy as it sounds. Had it grabbed a limb it would have probably took him under and drowned him. That drone flying friend part is ill though. Maybe son couldn’t get to him in time. And the other dude was able to take him faster. Maybe knowing son made it to hard too help. That happens. Easy to be calm when there’s no attachment.
fu*k that balloon though.
