This is the moment a curious pup narrowly escapes the jaws of death - after an ALLIGATOR pops up next to him as he swms in Hurricane Irma storm waters. Corina Cox, 37, was evacuated from her home in Kissame, Florida, after the storm hit and had taken her dog, Pokey, to stretch his legs and enjoy a swim in the storm waters. Unknowingly to both Corina and Pokey the waters were infested by an alligator looking for his next meal. Corina said: "I was looking through my phone directly at Pokey and not watching my surroundings at all. "It looks like Pokey saw it and jumped out to see what it was, it must have startled the alligator."
