    NORTH LAUDERDALE - Construction worker Jimmy Lloyd Sewell knew it was April Fool's Day, but the scaly alligator he saw walking beneath the turnpike overpass early Tuesday was no joke.

    "That's a crazy thing," the 40-year-old carpenter said about seeing the 10-foot-long beast strolling leisurely along the shoulder of busy State Road 7 as motorists gawked.

    "You hear about alligators eating people so I was not going to get too close," Sewell said.

    While a co-worker called 911, Sewell herded kids on bikes away from the 400-pound gator as it headed south away from the overpass.
