ENGLEWOOD — A local woman fell prey to several alligators on Friday after falling into a pond at Boca Royale Golf and Country Club in Englewood. The woman, who was not identified and whose age was not released, was observed falling into a pond along the golf course near her home and struggling to stay afloat, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
“While in the water, two alligators were observed near the victim and ultimately grabbed her while in the water,” a news release said.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded to capture and remove the alligators from the pond, officials said. No cause of death had been determined.
No further details were released late Friday. Authorities said the investigation was in the early stages.
