#7 – James Morrow Alligator Attack
As James Morrow learned, swimming in Florida should be reserved for the beach. He was going for a swim in Juniper Springs while on vacation in 1997 when he was attacked by an alligator. The alligator grasped his head in its mouth but, by some miracle, Morrow’s mask took the majority of the force. He was able to get away but nearly drowned in his own blood due to a collapsed lung.
