Man and child end up stranded on zipline high above gators

- A man and a child were rescued after being suspended high above alligators while stuck on a zipline in Orlando. 

The pair were ziplining at Gatorland when they got stuck about 40 feet above the gator-infested waters on Saturday, July 7.

T.J. Mills recorded the pair dangling in the air saying, "You really think you're having a bad day? Let me show you what a bad day looks like," while zooming in on the two suspended in midair above the alligators.

Gatorland's manager told an Orlando television station the pair were never in any danger and the guides are fully trained to respond in that situation. Wind gusts sometimes maroon zipliners, the manager added.

No one was hurt and the two were brought back to safety.
