So what do we call this, an attempt at bravery or a deliberate act of suicide? This we will never know as the only person who can answer this has been devoured by an alligator.
In a recent report by CNN, a man in Texas jumped into water full of alligators despite several warnings from a person and sign posts placed around the site. The incident took place at Burkart’s Marina near the Louisiana state line in Texas on Friday, 3rd of July.
Tommie Woodward, reported to be 28 years old went swimming with a female friend and was attacked by the alligator.
Michelle Wright, a witness and Marina’s employee said that she tried to warn the victim about the presence of alligators in the water. However, he ignored the warning by mocking the alligators saying “blank the alligators” and jumped right into the water.
The victim was attacked almost immediately after jumping in and his body was found several hours later. Luckily, the female with him was unharmed.
