Updated:ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A St. Petersburg teen said his baggy pants saved his life.
Kendrick Williams said he was walking through a parking lot of an apartment complex when all of a sudden he stumbled upon an alligator.
When 17-year-old Williams ran, he said the gator tried to lunge at him, but only managed to get a piece of his pants.
"I heard the hiss and then I looked down and seen the alligator on the ground," said Williams. "It was scary, man it was alright. I don't want to say it was alright, but it frightened me."
Officials said they haven't caught the gator yet that attacked Williams.
