Alligator bites 10-year-old boy in Florida

One Lehigh Acres, Florida boy will have quite the story to tell at school Tuesday and for years to come after an alligator bit him.

Luckily for him, it was just a baby gator and the bite wasn’t severe.

"I was walking in the water," said Bobby Golio, the victim.

Bobby and his friends were playing near a canal that is typically bone-dry, but on Monday after the storms, they found more than just water.

"We washed the wound out really good because there’s a lot of bacteria in alligator’s mouth," said Bobby.
