A 9-year-old Florida boy amazingly only had minor injuries after fighting off a 400-pound alligator he encountered while swimming Thursday.

James Barney Jr. was swimming in a lake in Saint Cloud, Fla., when he said he felt something clamp down on his foot.

“I just immediately hit it and I let it go a little so I pry its jaw open,” James said. “First I thought someone was just playing with me and I didn’t know what happened. I reached down to go grab it and I felt its jaw, I felt its teeth.”

The nine-foot alligator left only minor cuts — and a tooth — on James’ leg.

“I want to put it on a necklace so that I can tell all my friends,” James said of the tooth.
