A Florida teenage boy was bitten by an alligator Tuesday near a Winter Springs creek. 13 year-old Florida teen Gabriel Klimis called 911 and told the dispatcher, “I just got bit by a gator.” He went on to say, “I’m OK though. I can walk and I can stand. I’m fine, it just stings a little, but I’m good.”

According to clickorlando.com, Klimis said he was bitten in the right hip while walking along the bank at Howell Creek Trestle in central Florida. Seminole County Fire Department officials said their agency received the call, but Oviedo Fire took Klimis to a hospital.

A Winter Springs police report noted that Klimis said that he was swimming in the creek with friends, but they decided to get out of the water due to a storm coming in. He told police that they were walking along the bank of the creek when the gator “suddenly jumped out of the water and bit him.”

Klimis told News 6 in Orlando that he felt a tug and knew what it was from the start. He said he slapped the water and tried to push the alligator off of him. The quick-thinking boy said he then grabbed a stick to help pry his way out of the gator’s jaws. The alligator then swam away and the teen was able to get out of the creek and call 911. When the operator asked about his wound, Klimis said it was “not bleeding too bad, but my skin’s like open pretty good.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission also responded to the scene and are investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, Gabriel Klimis probably just became the most admired and popular student at whatever school he goes to after being attacked by an alligator and walking away from it.

Florida Man Wearing Only A Loincloth And Socks Smashed Into Several Vehicles And Tried To Outrun A Helicopter Before Crashing Into The Flagler County Landfill

I understand the headline is quite lengthy, but it was needed to really tell the story. 22-year-old Stephen Peterson of Port Orange and 20-year-old Victoria Averill had quite an adventure before it all ended at the Flagler County Landfill.

It all started on June 21st in Flagler Beach, Florida when our Florida Man and his accomplice drove through the intersection of State Road 100 East and Old Kings Road South and strike multiple vehicles. That’s just off I95 near the Popeye’s. The SUV then continued south on Old Kings Road at a high rate of speed. The incident was spotted by a  MyFWC Florida Fish and Wildlife officer who then attempted to stop the vehicle. The FWC officer activated his emergency lights and siren but the vehicle did not stop. Does the FWC even have authority to pull over vehicles? I’m not sure. Anyway…

Then, according to Flagler County Sheriff “The vehicle entered the property of Old Kings Elementary School and drove around the running track before exiting the school and continuing to flee down Old Kings Road. The vehicle then entered the Flagler County Landfill and into the wooded area between the landfill and I-95.” And that’s where things went wrong.

Flagler County Fire Rescue Fireflight, which is the fire department’s helicopter, monitored the vehicle’s location and directed deputies to the vehicles location. The vehicle had run into and become stuck on a concrete barrier. This next line, sums it up nicely. “The male was naked except for a small covering wrapped around his waist and socks. It is unknown why the male was not wearing more clothing.”

  • Sounds insane? Here's the video.

  • So, what's the charges?

    From the FCSOPeterson was arrested for Fleeing and Eluding, Leaving the Scene of a Crash with Damage to Vehicle or Property, Resisting an Officer without Violence, Trespassing on School Grounds, Possession of Marijuana Under 20 Grams, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia/Equipment.
