Croc attacks two in Coral Gables canal . . .

CORAL GABLES (CBSMiami) – Police are trying to get the word out in a Coral Gables neighborhood after a man was bitten by a crocodile over the weekend–a first in Florida.
The man, identified as Alejandro Jimenez, was visiting friends in the 1300 block of Lugo Avenue when he and a woman decided to go for a swim around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
As he got into the canal, a croc, believed to be eight to nine foot in length, bit him and his female companion.
“One to the shoulder and one to the hand, ” said Jorge Pino with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “They are very lucky.* They are very lucky that they managed to get away from the crocodile with no problem.”


There's a twelve footer in the area also . . . . :willynilly
