13 years old me camping at Ocean Pond swimming with 2 cousins about 75 yards out on a blow up ring float start getting yelled to come by my uncle, 1 cousin decided to swim up immediately, me and the other cousin decide to take our time coming in mostly ignoring our uncle. Uncle starts cussing which freaks out other cousin so he swims in, meanwhile I'm still 50 yards out and taking my time but finally start paddling in slowly. As I'm about 15 yards out my uncle starts yelling there is a Gator behind you get out of the F'ing water. Thank God I didn't look back before getting out of the water and not freaking out because it could have cost me my life. Get out if the water and sure enough there is like a 10ft momma with 3 babies.
Game Warden had just warned my uncle not to let us swim outside of the swimming area because it was mating season and gators are very aggressive during that time of year.
