A Florida teen is recovering at a Fort Myers hospital after a 10 feet long alligator bit off his arm.
Kaleb Langdale, 17, was swimming with friends in the Caloosahatchee River when the alligator attacked. Friends say the alligator made a beeline for Kaleb, also known as "Fred."
Fred's friends also state that the teen offered his arm to dissuade the gator from attacking his body, while noting his experience with alligators.
Trappers caught and killed the suspected alligator, extracting the arm in an attempt to reattach it to the boy.
Unfortunately, the doctors could not reunite Fred with his arm.
