It’s not often that you hear of a gator intervening to save someone, but this mascot stepped in to shield a foul ball from smacking a child in the head!

Florida Gator


Albert Gator, the University of Florida Gators’ mascot, was sitting next to a young boy in the stands, when a foul ball came flying their direction! Instinctively, the mascot threw his plush arms and body over the child, effectively shielding him from the ball’s impact.

Albert took the ball off his nose, like a champ!

The Florida Gators tweeted out the video, with the caption “Saving children from foul balls – just another reason to follow @AlbertGator on Twitter! #GoGators”


Watch this!



How great is it when the kid starts CPR!

Way to go Albert Gator!
