(WICHITA, Kan.) — Everybody calls him Gator, and his life has taken a dramatic turn.
"Now I have different clothes I can wear each day," Gator says.
There are a lot of things he has now that he didn't have a couple weeks ago.
"I enjoy being able to get a shower every day and three meals a day," Gator says. "Out there on some days you might not get to eat."
Gator, if you can believe it, has been living for the past twelve years underneath Wichita bridges.
"I guess I was doing it for so long I just got used to it."
But recently, police told Gator to pack up and get out from under the Seneca Street bridge. It just so happened that Ken Lockwood was near the river within earshot.
"I was raised that you don't look down upon those that are in a situation they have no control over," Lockwood says.
