(CNN) A man who apparently mocked alligators, then jumped in the water -- despite warning signs -- is dead after being attacked in Texas.
Orange County Police were called to Burkart's Marina near the Louisiana state line early Friday morning after reports that Tommie Woodward, 28, and an unidentified woman were swimming in a bayou and had been attacked by a large alligator.
Woodward's body was found several hours later. The woman was not injured.
