ORLANDO, Fla. —
Newly uncovered video captures the moment a man fell into a pit of alligators while trying to perform a stunt in Orlando.
Michael Womer plunged into the pit of gators when a rope swing snapped during a performance in Orlando.
It happened two years ago, but Womer said the video has picked up steam after he recently reshared it on his YouTube page.
Womer fell into the water but managed to escape without injury.
“It was at this precise moment, I knew what a turkey feels like right before Thanksgiving dinner,” Wormer said in video he posted on Facebook.
Womer, who refers to himself as the “gator crusader,” has dozens of videos of himself performing alligator related stunts on his YouTube page.
In one video, Womer brushed an alligator’s teeth and in another he sticks a hotdog in his mouth and then feeds it to a gator.
Womer spoke with WESH 2 News on Tuesday about the accident. See video, below.
