In the USA the alligator crashed into the kayak and flipped it

Tourist Pete Joyce filmed the moment when it crashed into an alligator on the river Vaccaro in North Carolina, according to CNN.

Pete Joyce went on to study wildlife on the river Vaccaro. To capture video of his journey by kayak, he attached to the breast action camera. But the movie was more effective than expected: suddenly appeared out of nowhere a large alligator, rapidly swam to the kayak and flipped it over.

A tourist posted a video online, signing that nature gave him such a warm welcome as ever. Pete noted that he practices kayaking at least once a week, but the gators had never met before.

"I was just about to turn around when he swam at me. Video does not convey fully how strong was the collision. The alligator was hit so hard that I lost balance," said Pete.

The meeting was not over. Alligator three more times, hit the kayak after he regained his balance. But, fortunately, all ended well, and the man was not injured.
