According to reports, Rivera lost his right arm in the fight, which he has no recollection of. On Sunday morning, a 23-year-old man named Jordan Rivera from Florida slipped into a pond where an alligator awaited. According to reports, Rivera lost his right arm in the fight, which he has no recollection of.
Rivera interviewed NBC2 from his hospital bed, explaining how he had walked over to the water hole before realizing how large it was. I found myself in the ocean. That’s the last thing I can remember happening. According to reports, neighbours dragged Rivera from the sea and used a tourniquet they found to heal him.
How Did Rivera Respond To The Amputation?
Rivera seemed unfazed as he told reporters about waking up in the hospital. When I saw my arm in that position, I was shocked. It’s not the end of the world that I lost an arm and not my life, Rivera stated. Before waking up in the ICU and hearing, “Oh, gator got your arm,” I fundamentally misunderstood those gators.

My elbow was taken. As a result,” he continued, “I don’t have an elbow. I can still move my arm and do other things. Rivera used the moment to dispel rumours circulating in the community that he had been feeding the alligator.
“That is completely not true,” he said. I couldn’t have even served the Gator food there because the bar doesn’t serve food. The euthanization of the 3.17-meter alligator was confirmed to NBC2 by a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission representative.
