A visitor at a Utah reptile center leaped into action when an alligator pulled an employee into its enclosure and begin thrashing her around.⁠

That visitor was able to pin the gator down and listened as the employee calmly explained how to free her from the animal’s locked jaws.⁠

Shane Richins, the company’s owner, said the handler underwent surgery and is taking antibiotics. The West Valley City business said Sunday she is “doing well and is in recovery.”
