Hunt on for alligator that bit brave Florida boy in the backside
A precocious Florida boy was the star of his own press conference as he described to reporters how an alligator bit him on his backside as he swam in a lake. "I felt its jaw. I felt its teeth," explained 9-year-old James Barney, Jr., holding the microphone himself. After feeling something bump into his rear end, he reached down and realized it was a gator. "I pried its jaw open," he said from his hospital bed in Orlando Friday. "And I pulled myself out."
