28-Year-Old Man Killed By Alligator During Late Night Texas Swim

Posted on in NEWS

A 28-year-old man went swimming in a Southwest Texas marina, at which point he was attacked and killed by an alligator.

According to Fox News:

Police in Orange, near the state line with Louisiana, say 28-year-old Tommie Woodward was swimming in a bayou early Friday morning when the attack occurred.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies and a Texas game warden found his body nearby about two hours later.

The site continues:

Police said the man was swimming with a woman, but Justice of the Peace Rodney Price told KFDM-TV in Beaumont that she only jumped from a dock after the man screamed for help.

Reports say there are signs warning people to avoid the area due to reptiles. We pray for the victim’s family and loved ones during this time.
