  2. عبد الله جابي on August 7, 2022 at 3:21 am

  3. Tun Up Di Ting on August 7, 2022 at 3:24 am

    maybe that kid was adopted by a gay dad The way how you sound don’t like any normal man it’s not like he got his back digged out

  4. Jc James on August 7, 2022 at 3:26 am

    His father failed him I would of shot that gator right then and there you’re not stealing my kids moment lol it’s not even about the fish it was his sons moment

  5. Nathan Rosiek on August 7, 2022 at 3:26 am

    So that crocodile just gets away with the pole en he stoles the fish 🤣🤣🤣

  6. Humblehombre on August 7, 2022 at 3:26 am

    What a useless father! Rather film it than-1) GRAB YOUR SON! 2) grab the rod 3)say something inspirational to your boy other than an overly exagerated and WOMANLY O. M. G. Get a grip on your bloody manliness, if it isn’t already too late. It isn’t too late for your son to shine as a man.

  7. Terrance Davis on August 7, 2022 at 3:28 am

    And there’s the head of a gator in the clouds.. at the top, to the right of center

  8. Altysha Koichueva on August 7, 2022 at 3:29 am

    At that time of the day… such a big pond/waterbody, a child that close… OMG what a horrible father!! He should be arrested! To the people who say, that gator was small, what if it was 11-12 foot long gator instead..?! I do not think this man would jump and safe the child…

  9. Rafa on August 7, 2022 at 3:30 am

  10. Lee Rose on August 7, 2022 at 3:31 am

  11. EnglishMoFo on August 7, 2022 at 3:31 am

  12. The world of reichen on August 7, 2022 at 3:32 am

    “Suck it kid this fish is mine”

  13. Off the top rope on August 7, 2022 at 3:32 am

    Can’t believe he let his precious child near that waters edge!

  14. YouTubeAlgorithm Dismantler on August 7, 2022 at 3:32 am

    I would’ve kidnapped the gator, I did it to a huge snapping turtle that locked onto a fish in my live trap

  15. Trey Willingham on August 7, 2022 at 3:34 am

  16. Kami Murphy on August 7, 2022 at 3:35 am

  18. MrBassMan on August 7, 2022 at 3:37 am

    And this day he turned into a Florida man 😂😂😂😂

  19. Lexicon on August 7, 2022 at 3:37 am

    I hope the gator likes the taste of hook line and sinker

  20. naitik gaming on August 7, 2022 at 3:38 am

    not the fishing pole too !

  21. Mitten Driter on August 7, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I wish it got the boy. Would be so funny.

  22. Awesome on August 7, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I’ve lived in Florida all my life. Gators are not crocodiles! They almost never attack people. I’ve kayaked right next to a giant alligator and he just swam away.

  23. Sean Og Keane on August 7, 2022 at 3:44 am

    I am not letting that slide bro stole the rod I’m chasing him

  24. M Prioleau on August 7, 2022 at 3:46 am

    That’s very dangerous for an adult, nevermind a child. Thank God it was the fish…

  25. SwaggyB Fishing on August 7, 2022 at 3:47 am

    Dummy grab the rod

  26. Diana Kay Cadle on August 7, 2022 at 3:47 am

  27. SwaggyB Fishing on August 7, 2022 at 3:47 am

  28. Rezeki on August 7, 2022 at 3:49 am

    If I were in that situation that gater could keep that fishing rod for its own kid, It was never mine and I was never there

  29. Shane O'Mack on August 7, 2022 at 3:49 am

    This is Florida.. it’s their home. We just fish in it

  30. Illmatick on August 7, 2022 at 3:49 am

    I was just thinking the entire time "they know their in florida (obviously) why the fuck would you even get that close to water. All water is dangerous in Florida fuck that

  31. Patsy Frisby on August 7, 2022 at 3:50 am

    the Elegator also got the Hook

  32. Binoy Vudi on August 7, 2022 at 3:52 am

    Letting your kid stand that close to a swamp in Florida is criminally stupid.

  33. •Neonun namane special TV• on August 7, 2022 at 3:54 am

    Gator: Yeah that’s right the rod is mine now too!!!!! 🐊 💨💨💨💨

  34. gup_crispp on August 7, 2022 at 3:58 am

    Bruh just pull the fish out of its mouth stop standing there and looking at it 😂 he took the bait caster with him and we all know how much bait casters are I would’ve been pissed off to be honest smh 🤦‍♂️

  41. God Speed on August 7, 2022 at 4:04 am

    That father should have not let his child that close to the water. but he’s probably a dumb dumb from NY or NJ

  42. Caroline Ullrich on August 7, 2022 at 4:06 am

    Glad boy was okay. Not good fishing pool went in water with alligator. Environmentally hazardous for whole pond

  43. HOLLOW HILL on August 7, 2022 at 4:06 am

    Alligator 🐊 for the save… 🐟

  44. XR_K1D on August 7, 2022 at 4:10 am

  46. nilsa camacho on August 7, 2022 at 4:14 am
