WATCH: Boy Miraculously Fights Off 400-Pound Alligator

Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.


A 9-year old boy is making news headlines across the country for wrestling a 9-foot long, 400-pound alligator—and winning.

"It really amazed me what happened. At first I thought someone was just playing with me, and I didn't know what happened," James Barney Jr. said in a press conference.

"I reached down to go grab it, and I felt its jaw, I felt its teeth, and I didn't know what to do, so I immediately reacted and hit it a couple times. So then it was letting go a little, and then finally I had enough strength left to pry its jaw open a little."

Watch the boy share his amazing story below.
