A 28-year-old Texas man perished early on Friday morning after an alligator bit him in a bayou, reports CBS News.

The man had been swimming in Burkart’s Marina in the southeast Texas town of Orange, near the border with Louisiana, around 2:30 a.m. on Friday. He was then attacked by a massive alligator shortly after jumping in, according to witness reports.

Two hours after the incident, the Texas game warden, sheriff’s deputies in tow, found his body not far from where he was attacked. The man has not yet been identified…

The area is marked by signs reading ‘No Swimming: Alligators.’
