Body of woman found after alligator attack in Florida

Body of woman found after alligator attack in Florida

A Florida woman is believed to be dead after an alligator attack in Davie, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Divers have found the body of a woman dragged into a lake by an alligator while walking her dogs.

Matsuki's husband asked her to walk the dogs while he's out of town in Chicago, but had warned about this particular park, Local 10 reported.

"Search teams located the body of Ms. Matsuki June 8 at the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park lake in Davie". Her dogs, one with a fresh wound, were taken to Broward County Animal and Care and Adoption.

That's when human remains were found inside the gator, authorities said.

The warning came just after a 6-foot alligator was found near a resident's front door.

The girl admitted to playing the game at night in secret, for up to ten hours at a time. "I found her backside was red-raw". Culture Secretary Matt Hancock has warned that addictive online shooter games can have a damaging impact on children.

"This tragedy is heartbreaking for everyone involved, and our honest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim at this time", Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Rob Klepper told KPLG-TV. "We will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident".

Jim Borelli, a friend of the family, also said that Matsuki and her husband have been known to walk their dogs in the park previously, and that while the couple didn't actually live in the neighbourhood, Matsuki enjoyed finding different places to walk their dogs.

The warning from the neighborhood association about alligators in the water may have prompted her to change things up and go to a lake farther away.

Florida wildlife officials have logged 401 "unprovoked bite incidents" from 1948 to 2017, according to a fact sheet published in 2017. "She probably thought that Lake was safer alternative, after so many gators have been showing up around here lately", neighbor Nate Fischer posted on Facebook.

A 2-year-old boy was killed by an alligator at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in 2016.
