More on Devin Funck, Slidell Boy Attacked By Gator

WWL TV has a good human interest story and video about the bravery of Devin Funck, the 11-year-old Slidell boy whose arm was ripped off by a 10-foot alligator yesterday near Kingspoint. The story interviews St. Tammany Parish deputies who were on the scene. Devin is recuperating in the Pediatric Unit of Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans. Unfortunately, surgery to reattach the arm did not succeed, friends of the Funck family told WWL.

The Times Picayune, on the web as NOLA.com, also has an update on Devin with a WGSO radio interview with friend of the family Juanita McAuley. According to the newspaper's story, the gator was 10 feet 8 inches long.
