Report: Alligator seen chewing on body of plane crash victim in Everglades

Recommended Posts

Footage above a plane crash in the Everglades led to a disturbing discovery on Thursday.

 

 

The Federal Aviation Administration told WPLG that a Cessna 152 crashed in the Everglades about 7 miles west of Homestead with only the pilot on board.

The single-engine plane could been seen from a WPLG helicopter and an alligator was spotted wading near a body in the water. A tweet from WPLG managing editor Pete Burke indicates that the gator appeared to be eating the body.

Don't know if anyone here remembers Valuejet flight 592?

They had an everglades crash as well.

All 110 perished 

Gators had their way with alot of the bodies as the authorities had to retrieve all the luggage and wreckage to reconstruct the crash

Jawbones and flesh and teeth were used....
