Alligator Bites Trainers Arm! Man is attacked by gator at Cuyahoga Fair in Berea, Ohio. The alligator attack is caught on tape as gator trainer is performing in front of a crowd at the alligator show near Cleveland.
The reptile trainer's name is Daniel Beck who works with Kachunga and the Alligator Show. Daniels first attempt was successful, however, when he goes back the 2nd time the gator seems to be much more agitated and aggressive.
Daniel's partner, Albert Lucas, came over to help by trying to tap the gator's snout which will usually cause an alligator to open it's mouth. When that failed, Lucas grabbed a bar and was able to free Daniel's arm from the killer gator's mouth. Daniel needed several stitches and will be okay.
The alligator trainer blames himself for the animal accident and will return to the show as soon as he can. The gator was just doing what he is supposed to and fortunately, nothing will happen to the alligator.
