Lance Burgos and his daughter were fishing in Lake Fausse Point State Park in Louisiana. They thought that they had caught a garfish on a line. So they pulled it up.

Burgos began pedalling his kayak as fast as he could, desperately trying to put distance between the alligator and his daughter. Burgos tells The Times-Picayune that the alligator was about 13 feet long.
