ORANGE, Texas (AP) - A man has died after an alligator attacked him during a late-night swim at a Southeast Texas marina.

Police in Orange, near the state line with Louisiana, say the unidentified 28-year-old man was swimming in a bayou early Friday morning when the attack occurred.

Orange County sheriff's deputies and a Texas game warden found his body nearby about two hours later.

Police said the man was swimming with a woman, but Justice of the Peace Rodney Price told KFDM-TV in Beaumont that she only jumped from a dock after the man screamed for help.

Price says a sign warns people not to swim in the area and that the man was bitten soon after he jumped in.

The woman was not hurt.
