Woman kayaker attacked by alligator

FLORIDA — A woman was kayaking in the Florida Everglades when two alligators attacked her and her boat.

The two creatures latched onto her kayak and latched their teeth onto it.

Luckily the woman had her phone and called 9-1-1 while she was sinking into the water.

The woman, Sarah Boyton, was able to pull herself up on some grass but not before panic set in.

"I got very anxious, and was very shaken up, because, so what if I was still out there by dusk and, and gators go out and start hunting, and I just, I let my primal fear take over," said Boyton.

A rescue team was able to find her and rescue her. She walked away without a scratch.
