Alligator Rams Kayaker Into Water [VIDEO]

A kayaker in North Carolina got a heart-stopping surprise when an alligator rammed him and knocked him into the river.

Video shows an alligator lurking up then powering its head and body into Peter Joyce's kayak while he was out paddling on the Waccamaw River.

"I thought I heard a fish jump to my left — turned out not to be a fish," Joyce said "About three feet from the kayak I made out the head of the gator and that was it, I had no time to react."
