Giving up an arm to a gator to save your life (video)

(by pio dal cin)

I thought I  saw the face of death back in 1986 when I fell off  the boat I rented to get close to the alligators in the Florida Everglades.
When I tried as fast as I could to swim back to the surface, I knew that those lizards were there so I did not care what was on top of my head as I gained the surface.
The boat had become going in circles and the propeller hit my straight in the right arm, almost sewering it off.
It took me two operations and eighteen days in the hospital to get better, but what happened to me is really nothing compared to what happened to this young brave man in South West Florida
