and they got the arm back


The story

A man whose left arm was bitten off by a 600-pound alligator is fortunate to be alive, thanks in part to five nurses picnicking nearby.
Bill Hedden, 59, was snorkeling in a South Carolina lake on Sunday when the 12-foot-long gator attacked, according to witnesses.
"Suddenly we had commotion and we saw a guy right here. He's bleeding profusely. We thought he was just kidding," witness Jerome Bien told CNN affiliate WCSC-TV in Charleston.
