A fun day of swimming in Texas turned into a scare when an alligator got a little too close for comfort.

Girl Scouts in Huntsville, Texas, were enjoying a trip to Lake Raven -- right up until a 14-foot alligator starting swimming toward them.

In a video captured by local witness David Siljeg, the alligator is seen slowly swimming closer and closer to the group of girls while scout leaders rushed into the water to pull them out.

Everyone safely evacuated the water, and Huntsville State Park officials said that no one was injured. The park was closed for the day.
