Watch And Learn

A 16-year-old being dragged into a Central Florida lake by an 11-foot alligator used a tip he watched on a Discovery Channel show to break free and save his life. Corey Workman was throwing rocks and sticks into the St. John's River in Volusia County, FL on Saturday, when an alligator jumped out of the water, grabbed his left foot and dragged him into the lake. He remembered that you should stick your thumb in the gator's eye (that's their most sensitive part) so he did, and it let him go!
