ORLANDO, Fla. (AP — Authorities say a Florida man was bitten by an alligator after he mistook it for dead.

41-year-old Bryan Rohm was reportedly bitten on the thumb and taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office says Rohm and his son were on a boat Saturday and had a permit to hunt alligators. They shot an alligator twice with a specialized firearm known as a “bang stick” and thought it was dead. But the alligator bit Rohm as he tried to get it in the boat.

The alligator then jumped back into the water.
