ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- An alligator attacked a landscaper working near a lake at Orlando International Airport.
The incident happened Wednesday as 50-year-old Philip Brian Letner cut weeds near the lake off of State Road 528 in Orlando.
Officials say the 8-foot alligator bit Letner on the leg. A co-worker came to his aid and the gator went back into the lake.
Orlando television station WESH (http://bit.ly/14kwI4D ) reports Letner was taken to a hospital where he got stitches.
Airport workers caught the gator and officials say it will be killed.
