Police: Witness saw gator drag woman into Florida lake
Police are searching for a woman after an alligator reportedly dragged her into a lake on Friday morning.
"It could have been one of us", said Patricia Ramsaran.
The caller reported seeing the alligator drag her into the pond in Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park at about 9:45 a.m. Friday.
"There are plenty of gators in this lake", she said. I'm out here all the time with my kids, my husband.
Neighbours told local media that they have seen children swimming in the lakes. Feeding wild alligators is illegal because they could lose their fear of humans. There's not even big signs out here about alligators being posted into this water, and they're huge.
"This tragedy is heartbreaking for everyone involved, and our honest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim at this time", Klepper said.
Police responded to the scene and found a dog on a leash, but not the owner.
A witness saw the woman walking her dogs and then noticed she was suddenly gone, WSVN reported.
The dogs have been turned over to animal control.
Alligators live in all 67 of Florida's counties, and as development happens near wetlands and waterfronts, people can expect to encounter the reptiles, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission said on its website.
A human arm was found inside an alligator that was captured in the area near where police were searching for a missing woman in Florida, according to our sister station WPLG-TV. Since 1948, there have been 300 incidents when alligators have bitten people, and 22 have died. The most recent death occurred in 2016, when a 2-year-old boy playing near the water's edge at a Walt Disney World resort was killed.
