Authorities responded to an apartment complex in Florida when an alligator wandered into a building and trapped some residents inside an elevator.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded alongside a trapper when a call came in about an alligator inside a building at the Estero Parc apartment complex.

The sheriff’s office said residents ended up trapped inside the elevator when they found the alligator blocking the door.

They humanely removed the gator,” the sheriff’s office said. “The apartment complex community was extremely thankful for the deputies response.”
