crocodile attack

The woman mistook the alligator for the log and went to the hospital.

GPI GIS analyst Kelsey Pollack worked in a nature reserve in the north of the Everglades region (Florida, USA). She collected the data needed by the South Florida Water Authority to deal with the invasive cattail that prevents native marsh grass from growing.

Pollock, waist-deep, went into the water in rubber pants and accidentally stepped on an alligator, taking it for a log. An alligator bit a woman's leg. But she, jumping out of the water, quickly climbed a tree. A colleague called her an ambulance.

In the hospital, the injured sutured the wound. The resulting injury is not life threatening. This is reported by WPEC.
