When A Gator Came For This Tiny Girl, She Did Something Totally Incredible

On May 6, 10-year-old Juliana Ossa was at Mary Jane Lake in Orlando, Florida, when she felt something bite her.

When she looked down into the water, she saw that an alligator had her leg between its jaws. For those around her, things probably didn’t look good for Juliana, but her reaction to the scary attack ended up saving her life (and leg).

Juliana had been sitting in water that was only a foot deep when she was attacked.
