"A man was killed early Friday when an alligator attacked him during a late-night swim at a Southeast Texas marina, according to police.
Orange police Capt. Robert Enmon said Tommie Woodward, 28, suffered severe trauma to a limb when he was attacked early Friday morning at the private marina, which is along a bayou extending from the Sabine River near the Louisiana line.
Orange County sheriff's deputies and a Texas game warden found his body nearby about two hours later.
Police said Woodward, who lived near the marina in Orange, was swimming with a woman, but Justice of the Peace Rodney Price told KFDM-TV in Beaumont that she only jumped from a dock after he screamed for help. The woman was not hurt.
Price said it appears Woodward was bitten soon after he jumped in."http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/man-killed-texas-alligator-attack-late-night-swim-32204656
