Victim of alligator attack doing well one year later

At the annual banquet for a group of Filipino-Americans, Bill Hedden found himself seated as the guest of honor. Still, the 60-year-old man said he wasn't there for the attention, but only to thank the group of nurses from the Filipino Roman Catholics that saved his life.

The group happened to be picnicking nearby when Hedden came out of the water missing an arm after being attacked by an alligator in Lake Moultrie on September 16, 2007.

Head over to The Post and Courier for the story of how he's getting along today.
