A man badly injured in an attack by a 12ft-long alligator in an incident caught by a drone has told Sky News how he grabbed the creature’s teeth, tongue and snout and was “miraculously” able to roll the animal.

JC La Verde, 34, said his head and torso ended up in the reptile’s mouth as it bit down on him before he was able to fend it off and get away.
