A Florida woman was snorkeling with a friend at Alexander Springs Recreation Area over the weekend when a nine-foot alligator attacked her and bit her forehead, and a photographer nearby happened to snap photos of the immediate aftermath, including one that clearly shows an alligator lurking behind them... ummmm, why didn't the guy shooting the photos warn them?!

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed the bite report and said a trapper was able to find the nuisance alligator and remove it. It's actually the second alligator incident to happen within the week.
