Shocking Drone Footage Shows Florida Man Being Attacked by an Alligator

Shocking Drone Footage Shows Florida Man Being Attacked by an Alligator – A Florida man was attacked by an alligator while swimming at an 839-acre lake earlier this month.

According to Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, drone pilot Matt Ross was shooting fireman and paramedic Juan Carlos La Verde when he suddenly felt a 12-foot alligator “pierce” his flesh and “bust” his skull.

La Verde, 34, was swimming in Lake Thonotosassa in suburban Tampa during the recording of an instructional video for DefeatX, an organization that uses physical efforts to assist individuals with anxiety and depression. The drone of Ross recorded the assault on video.

Ingenious Loafing According to Tampa Bay, the alligator locked its jaws with a force of around 2,000 pounds on La Verde’s head and breast. The bite was sufficient to fracture La Verde’s jaw and crush a part of his skull.

La Verde, a former U.S. Air Force pararescueman, detailed the moment he realized he was under assault in an interview with WFTS-TV.

“With the correct stroke, all I could feel were scales and teeth, and then I was like alright. “I instantly attempted to unlock its jaws because I realized I was inside an alligator,” La Verde said. “As soon as I felt the fangs, I knew, and as I opened it, I knew that either I turned it or it turned me, but it was just as bewildered as I was, and then it just let go.”

According to Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, it was the eighteenth alligator assault of the year.

A kind-hearted individual drove La Verde to the hospital. La Verde then suffered a 6-hour operation and will need other procedures in the coming months.

Ross, who inadvertently caught the assault from above, expressed disbelief that La Verde survived the confrontation.

Ross told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, “It’s both a tragedy and a miracle at the same time.”

La Verde revealed to the newspaper that he had not taken measures before to swimming in the lake, such as inspecting the water for alligators or avoiding weedy areas during nesting and hatching season.

Despite the frightening event, La Verde continues to look up.

“I am in wonderful health. La Verde told WFTS-TV, “I am genuinely better because this experience has provided me with a fresh viewpoint, which is something that few individuals are able to achieve.” “Find your God. Find him. It is absurd. I get that it’s frightening, I do, but life is scary, so you may shoulder that burden on your own or ask someone else to.”
