Alligators are pussies. This kid got farked up by an alligator. That's the kind of embarrassing shiat you should be keeping a secret, kid.

Hmm so kid goes to a RESTRICTED area in florida and the media paints him as a hero for not being turned into gator poop like he really should have been? nothing at all in the article about the parents? fail and florida tags must have been getting drunk and feeling each other up in the gutter.

Kid is high as a kite. Here's the actual bites. Not that bad. It could have bit his leg off.

Yikes. Kid's taking the harrowing incident in stride, though-not to mention some striking scars as a Darwinian reminder.

I know that I'd seen the kid's dad before.  Took me a minute to remember.

Heroes being turned into poop... have heard of this before.

Perhaps we should not point cameras at kids that are high on prescribed drugs, at all.

Nobody uses demerol anymore, Subby. Dilaudid. Get it right. Maybe fentanyl for a peds patient.

This was done wrong. I say we should give kids Morphine and Demerol before we send them to fight alligators.

Call him Amos Moses.

Just glad the kid fought off the gator and lived to tell the tale.

/Pretty lucky overall considering.

No, his left arm ain't gone clean up to the elbow.

That is all.

Rock on little dude.

Uhm bullshiat. Demerol is still very much in use. I had some the last time I went in for surgery in 2011 and again when I got a pulmonary embolism in 2012.

Wonder what kind of dreams he will have for the next couple of years. . .

Maybe subby is a narcotics classicist.

I bet subby is smart and super-pretty too.

Are we to assume the kid only dreamed he wrestled a gator - in fact, he was drugged out of his
gourd?  (If you're going to wrestle a gator - you'd have to be drugged.)

Arnold Palmer hospital? Either the doctors play too much golf, or they serve their patients iced tea with lemonade.

This alligator is a pussy.  I bet he's the laughing stock of all the other alligators in the pond now.  "Ha ha, you couldn't even take down a 60 pound human!"

They should really make sure this kid gets that tooth after they're done identifying that alligator.

The kid may be high as a kite, but he's 9 years old too and survived a gator attack.  He's probably just glad to be out of the water and doesn't fully comprehend how it would have felt to be dragged underwater and had his flesh ripped to pieces.  Okay, well he probably has some comprehension of it since that's what the gator tried to do, but he's safe now.

Yup, found this out a few years back.
broke and arm, snapped int pretty good, had some bone coming out. Doctors found out after 3 doses of morphine (1/hr) that I have no reaction to it because I am a soulless ginger, they give me demerol and it was alllll good.

Came in years later for something else, they were going to give me morphine, told them the situation and they told me they don't give demerol anymore, and they for sure as hell don't give anything a patient requests, red flags and all. So they gave me morphine, and realized I wasn't lying.

I always need extra anesthesia and no matter how many shots they give me, I always feel some of the drillings in my teeth, fun times.

Several news sources are saying he single-handedly fought the croc off.

You know who else "single-handedly" fought off a croc...
