‘But he’s a pretty tough old boy. Lost a lot of blood, but he’s fine.

‘A pretty good size gator…about 8 to 10 feet gator came up and grabbed him by the arm. It was a bit of a struggle.

‘Sometimes they will use a big hook, and a large piece of meat and throw it out there and catch him.’

Gators are common in Florida and Chief Barrett said they respond to these types of calls more often than expected.

He is now warning locals and visitors to be cautious, adding: ‘Pretty much every body of water has an alligator in it, including some swimming pools.’

The man's current condition is unknown, but it is thought that he is recovering from the attack in hospital
