May 9 (UPI) -- A visitor to the Gulf Coast in Alabama captured video of a kayaker paddling for his life while being chased through the water by an alligator.
Shannon Collins posted a series of videos to Facebook showing the unknown man furiously paddling his kayak toward the dock Sunday in Spanish Fort while a large alligator swims toward him.
"When you really really really don't want to tip over your kayak..." Collins wrote in the video's description.
Collins said in a comment that the kayaker successfully escaped.
"That gator followed him until he docked, then stayed there by him until he loaded his kayak in his truck and left. He got a little too close to her babies we think and she wasn't letting him out of her sight. That gator was serious," she wrote.
