Attacked by two alligators, an American dies on a golf course in Florida

An American woman has died in Florida after being attacked by two alligators.

A fatal encounter with two dangerous animals. An elderly woman died in Florida while on a golf course last Friday. ABC News reports that this American was attacked by two alligators after falling into a pond. The golf course is not far from her home, Sarasota County officials said.

The sheriff explained that after falling in the water, she “failed to float.” “While she was in the water, two alligators were seen next to the victim and they immediately grabbed her.” The latter, whose identity has not been revealed, was declared dead on the spot. Following this dramatic incident, a specialist from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission went to the scene and was able to recover the alligators in order to recover them for the police to investigate. The agency said it could not confirm at this time if the alligators were involved in the drama, but it has no plans to remove any other alligators from the area at this time. The autopsy must definitively establish the causes of death of the victim, in order to know if the fall, a drowning or the attack of the two animals caused his death.
