Alligator Attacks Kayaker

While kayaking on the Waccamaw River in North Carolina, Peter Joyce was suddenly charged by a submerged alligator. At the 0:50 mark in the above video, the gator rammed the kayak and flipped Joyce over for a few seconds before he was able to right himself.

Even after that terrifying experience, Joyce isn't done kayaking in the river. He tells WXII 12 News:

Joyce thinks the alligator could have been more aggressive because it was protecting its young and it is currently mating season.
He said he plans to paddle down this part of the river again, just at a different time of year.
