An alligator bites a man in a Florida park on one leg

An alligator bit a 30-year-old man in a park in Orange County, central Florida, while he was picking up an object from the water, a local newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The event occurred on Thursday afternoon at a community park in Pine Hills, in the aforementioned county, when a man, whose identity was not disclosed, was trying to recover an object that had fallen into the water, picked up the WFTV channel .

The man was admitted with minor injuries at the Orlando Regional Medical Center hospital, a spokesman for the firefighters said.

The Commission for the Conservation of Wildlife and Fisheries (FWC) is currently investigating the attack of the reptile and agents of this organism intend to remain in the park until the capture of the animal.

The FWC reported on its website that in the past 70 years there have been more than 400 attacks of alligators to humans, 24 of which were fatal.

Last year, an 8-foot, 9-inch alligator bit a 10-year-old girl in a lake in Orange County and caused puncture wounds to her knee and calf.

The most dramatic case that is remembered is that of a 2-year-old boy who, in front of his parents, was caught by an alligator on the shore of an artificial lagoon at a resort in Orlando and was found dead by divers in the waters of the lake in 2016.

The population of Florida alligators remains stable and is estimated at about 1.3 million copies.
