The fright of her life

The alligator was quietly swimming in the murky waters. When it saw a young woman above, it tried to grab her with its mouth open as she passed over it. Fortunately, the woman grabbed onto the harness and managed to avoid disaster!

But the young woman must have had the fright of her life, as she was suspended about 7 feet above the surface of the water!

Although it is well known that the waters of Florida are full of alligators, it must have been quite a surprise for the woman, who suddenly seemed to be in a hurry to reach dry land. When the zip line arrived, however, there was a lot of laughter. No harm done in the end!

You can see what happened in the video above, which caused a real buzz on social networks. How would you have reacted if you had been in this young woman's place?
