A 75-year-old golfer is now a firm believer in miracles after being saved from the jaws of a 9-foot alligator while playing on a Florida course. "He let me go," Albert Miller told The Ledger newspaper in Lakeland. "I was three feet from my life. He had me submerged up to my belt buckle. That was my miracle of the month."
Miller was attacked by the alligator last Wednesday as he went to look for his ball at the edge of a pond on the 15th green at the Lake Ashton Golf and Country Club. As he walked away the gator lunged from under the water and snagged Miller by his left knee.
"He lifted me up three feet and slammed me down," Miller said. "It was excruciating to say the least."
Two of his golfing partners ran to help and eventually freed him, but not until the alligator ripped wounds that required 35-40 stitches to close.
Trappers were called in, and in addition to capturing the 190-pound 9-footer they also caught a 6-footer.
