Girl says she stuck fingers up gator's nose to escape
ORLANDO - A 10-year-old Florida girl says she shoved her fingers up an alligator's snout to escape after the almost-9-foot-long reptile bit her.
Juliana Ossa on Monday told Orlando television station WKMG-TV that she learned the escape trick from visiting an alligator park called Gatorland.
The girl was sitting about 2 feet of water when the gator bit her on her knee and calf at Moss Park in the Orlando area on Saturday.
In a 911 call released Monday, a caller describes Juliana as having puncture wounds to her leg.
She was treated at a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening wounds.
