(WINK/Meredith) -- A man in Florida rushed to save his puppy from the grip of an alligator, and it was all recorded by nearby surveillance cameras. 

Richard Wilbanks says his instincts and adrenaline kicked in when a gator snatched his dog, Gunner, recently and dragged him into a pond. He immediately jumped into the water to save his pet.

“He just came out like a missile,” Wilbanks said.
