Gator halts plane on runway at Orlando airport

ORLANDO, FLA. (WSVN) - An alligator was spotted on an airport runway in central Florida on Monday.

Anthony Velardi says he was traveling home from Baltimore on a Spirit Airlines flight when the gator brought the plane to a stop.

Velardi said the pilot stopped taxiing and waited for the reptile to cross before continuing on to the gate, informing passengers about the unusual reason for their slight delay.
