Alligator handler recovering after attack and daring rescue by visitors.
Video taken by a guest shows an unidentified handler at Scales & Tails in Salt Lake City, talking to some adults and children about the alligator when it bit her hand and dragged her into the water.
After pulling the handler into its pen, the alligator began whipping around and kept its jaws clamped on her as she struggled to break free.
One of the guests, later identified as Donnie Wiseman, yelled "We've got trouble in here!" and then into the water and climbing on top of the reptile.
Wiseman got the alligator pinned, and the handler calmly gave him instructions to help her escape from the pool. Wiseman stayed on top of the reptile until after the woman was free and then jumped to safety also.
