A swirl in the dark water of Black Bayou Lake followed by a sharp stabbing injury to his arm after he fell into the water, led a man to believe he was bitten by an alligator.

But Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries agent Capt. Alan Bankston says there was no alligator involved.

The News-Star reports Soles saw a swirl in the water and thought it was an alligator.

Bankston says that while Soles was trying to see what it was, he fell out of the boat.

Bankston says while Soles was in the water, the boat started moving in circles and the propeller hit Soles' arm.
