Mannnnn!  —  Chambers County Sheriff’s officials are saying a boy and his father are lucky today after surviving an alligator attack at Cedar Hill Park.  Officials say the alligator bit a 13-year-old boy on the arm and took him under the water yesterday.  The boy’s father was then injured when the alligator bit him on the leg while trying to save his son.  The alligator eventually let go after the father repeatedly kicked it.
