This is a very Florida thing to happen. Sean McMahon posted a video to Facebook that shows what happened when he went fishing with his seven-year-old son, Dawson, behind their Palm Coast home. The video shows McMahon encouraging his son as he battles with a large bass on the end of his line. When the boy finally manages to drag the fish onto land, an alligator suddenly darts out of the water and grabs the fish in its jaws. Dawson drops his pole and runs, and the alligator swims back out into the water, taking the fish and pole with it.
His dad got the whole thing on video!
