Man attacked by 8-foot Alligator as Horrified Crowd Looks On

New Port Richey, Florida — An alligator show at the annual Cotee River Seafood Festival in Pasco County went terribly wrong Sunday afternoon, when the show’s star suffered a severe bite wound from an eight-foot alligator.

Event organizers say the attack happened in front of a crowd during the second of three shows Sunday put on by the “Swampmaster” Jeffrey Quattrocchi. Home video shot by a person in the crowd shows the 45-year-old handler walking in circles around the gator before it twirled around and latched onto his arm.

“Everyone thought it was part of the show, but when people realized it was real blood, that’s when it got real serious,” said Jason Cunningham, a volunteer with the Florida Guard Association who provided first aid immediately after the attack.

On the video tape, you can hear Quattrocchi repeatedly scream as he struggles to free his arm from the gator’s powerful jaw. Witnesses say the gator twisted in the water for several seconds before Quattrocchi finally broke free and leaped out of the tank to safety.
