Man bathing in pond attacked by alligator in Charlotte County

A man was airlifted to the hospital following an alligator attack at a pond in Port Charlotte Monday morning.

"I know that they're in there", Ron Theisen told the station.

He added: "You're having a nice day one minute, and the next minute, you're a bloody mess".

Authorities said Iman sustained injuries to his left foot, leg, hand and groin.

Iman was flown by helicopter to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, where he was listed in fair condition, according to NBC2.

The man somehow managed to walk to a nearby surgical center, where employees called 911.

Iman, who says he's a self-taught "physical healing arts professional", has been homeless for more than 20 years since moving to Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the gator bit Fredrick Iman, 68, as he was bathing in a pond.

The gator was removed from the pond and was later euthanized, authorities said.

"I'm a little upset", local resident Lisa Posten told WWSB-TV, in response to the creature being killed.
