Florida Woman Gets Bit On Face By Alligator
You can’t make this kind of stuff up and of course you know where it happened…but a Florida woman got bit in the face by a 9ft. alligator! That was the lead story this morning on The Mike & Carla Morning Show in the “Other News!”
According to report by Fox35/Orlando, Marissa and her friend Shane were snorkeling when the attack happened. She said that it happened so fast. She took off her masked only to see the two beady eyes of a gator staring her in the face. In fact, it was so quick, Marissa didn’t realize she had even been bitten!
The report also states that her boyfriend Shane said all he heard was a “rush of water, then saw the gator!” Next thing he knows is that Marissa’s head is inside the reptile’s mouth!
It’s been a long time since we’ve been to Florida, not too sure I would just snorkel anywhere! We know they encourage the “buddy” system when in the water, not sure if this helped much. And what do you do if you come face to face with a alligator?
Maybe swim away real fast? See, we have no idea! How about this, dive into a POOL!!!! Snorkel in a POOL! Just throwing out some ideas here. Good to know that the girl will be okay, even though it might be a while before she gets back into the water!
However. it was nice to see in the report that Marissa does not blame the alligator. And why would she…she was in the water! WOW, neither Mike O’Brian or Carla Rea would be that calm to talk about such an incident if indeed it would have happened to them.
We’re just glad everyone is okay…including the gator. Just one of the odd stories from this morning in M&C’s “Other News!”
