WBZ anchor Steve Burton said his life flashed before his eyes when the alligator he was holding met a crocodile.
The Boston CBS-owned station’s sports anchor was taping a segment for his Sunday sports show that included showing off some wild animals. The station says the alligator Burton was holding got spooked by a nearby crocodile and tried to skeedaddle.
“Hold him tight!” urged the visiting herpetologist Michael Ralbovsky. “I AM!” said Burton.
“That thing was so strong,” Burton said later. “I wasn’t fine!”
