Teen attacked by alligator out of hospital
FORT MYERS, Fla. (WSVN) -- A Florida teen who was attacked by an alligator is heading home.
Last week, an alligator bit 17-year-old Fred Langdale's right arm off while he swam in a local river. Now, Langdale has walked out of the hospital.
Langdale does not think he will be missing out on much of the things he loves to do with just one arm. "Playing Xbox. That's probably about it," he said. "Everything else, I've been looking up on the computer, I can do with a prosthetic."
The teen said the community is showering him with support.
Langdale will be fitted for a prosthetic arm in the next four to six weeks. A local charity is offering to donate a prosthetic arm to the teen.
