A curious puppy narrowly escaped the jaws of death after going splashing around in a flood - unaware he was swimming in alligator -infested waters following Hurricane Irma .
His brush with death was filmed by horrified owner Corina Cox, who had taken him out to stretch his legs after being evacuated.
The pup, named Pokey, was enjoying his swim when he spotted the reptile, which was looking for its next meal.
Corina, 37, believes Pokey's curiosity nearly proved fatal. She recounted her horror as she desperately pulled on his lead trying to save him.
