Texas man Tommy Woodward. This “snappy” headline captures almost the whole story:
’No swimming – alligators’: Man ignores warnings, is killed by alligator.
I particularly appreciated this part of the story:
"[Mr Woodward] made the ill-considered decision to go into the water," Mr Price said.
"Someone shouted a warning, and he said ‘blank the alligators’ and thereupon jumped into the water and almost immediately yelled for help."
