Chris Kight, 49, and Tracy Cusick, 39, sit underneath a shade tree beside the Crystal, a canal that runs parallel to I-75 and doubles as a swimming hole for locals. On Sunday night, Tim Delano, 18, had his hand severed by a 10-foot alligator while swimming at the Crystal with friends. Kight is worried that it will be 'shut down' because of the attack. 'It'd be a shame to shut it down,' he said. 'I'd petition it.'
