One minute, Devin Funck was a typical kid living a typical life in suburban Slidell, spending a lazy summer afternoon swimming with four friends in a lake near his home. The next minute, he was being dragged by his arm through the waters of Crystal Lake, fighting a 500-pound alligator named Big Joe with all the tenacity a 12-year-old boy could muster.

"It was Godzilla," he would recall of the monster that ripped off and swallowed his left arm in the July 30 attack.

By the day's end, doctors at Ochsner Medical Center broke the news to Devin and his parents that they could not reattach his arm, which authorities had retrieved after hunting down the alligator and killing it.

Devin's reaction was decisive: "Get me a robot arm that looks like the Terminator."

It's pretty cool how the kid managed to handle the situation. Even after his arm was bitten off, he still manages to keep this upbeat, optimistic attitude.

I applaud him on that :thup:
