STUART, Florida (AP) – Officials say an alligator attacked and seriously injured a man at a Florida Park.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said the attack happened just before noon Monday at Halpatiokee Regional Park in Stuart.
Officials say the man was riding a bicycle when he lost control and fell onto an embankment toward a body of water.
The 9-foot alligator grabbed the man, but he was able to break free in the end.
Officials say the man crawled away and was assisted by a bystander.
Rescuers secured the area and drove the man to a medical helicopter.
A professional trapper was called in to capture the king crocodile.
