Florida family finds 8-foot gator in pool

Living in South Florida you expect to see leaves, bugs, tadpoles, even snakes in your pool. But, an alligator?

That's what a Boca Raton family found Monday morning.

An 8-foot gator was lounging in the water at a home on SW 14th Drive.

The family lives near a canal, which is presumably where the gator came from.

Trappers were called and safely took the reptile away.
