Alligator Wades Toward Driver on Flooded Florida Road

A Florida man was caught by surprise when an alligator briskly waded toward his car on a flooded street in Saint Petersburg on August 16.

“OK, Who is playing Jumanji in Saint Petersburg, Florida?” Roger Light Jr said in a Facebook post.

Light was waiting at a traffic stop when he noticed some people staring from the street and others stopping to film.

Puzzled by the attention, and confused as to why some people were backing away from the area, Light looked out of his car window. “Next thing I knew I see this gator coming toward me on my passenger side,” he said.
