SPRING, Texas – A man is OK after being attacked by an alligator during a festival demonstration in Texas.

The video was posted on YouTube and has since been viewed more than 50,000 times.

In the video, a man in a black shirt can be seen close to the gator's mouth, but when another man in a red shirt approaches the gator from behind, things take a scary turn.

The gator quickly turns around and latches onto the man in the red shirt's arm, causing members of the crowd to scream.

The man was able to free his arm and was not seriously injured.
