A Florida woman was killed by alligators after officials say she fell into a pond at a country club and was attacked. 

FOX News reports that the elderly woman lived near the course and was seen falling into a pond at the Boca Royale Golf and Country Club in Sarasota County.

The woman reportedly struggled to get out of the pond before alligators attacked her and pulled her underneath the water's surface, according to the report. The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are investigating the woman's death.
