A Florida teenager is thanking his baggy pants for saving him from an alligator attack this week. Kendrick Williams was walking home Monday when a six- to seven-foot gator tried to take a bite out of his backside. Instead of biting flesh, the reptile bit into Kendrick’s pants. Kendrick ran home unhurt.
Wildlife officers say many alligators live in a pond near where the attack took place.
