News chopper spots alligator eating body of plane crash victim
A Florida plane crash scene became even more disturbing when an alligator was spotted devouring the victim’s body.
The wreckage was discovered Wednesday night in the Everglades four days after the plane took off on an unauthorized trip from a flight school, according to WPLG.
The sole occupant of the single-engine Cessna 152 was the pilot, who has not been identified.
Local news station WPLG headed to the scene where helicopter footage showed a body in a swamp next to the wreckage — and an alligator wading nearby.
“A gator appears to be chewing on a body next to the wreckage,” WPLG managing editor Peter Burke tweeted.
The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident.
