Alligator bites woman in Lee County park

- Just two days after a man was attacked by an alligator while diving for golf balls at a Charlotte County golf course, we're learning of yet another alligator attack in southwest Florida.

A 71-year-old woman was flown to the hospital after she was bitten by a 10-foot alligator Sunday. 

It happened in a gated community in San Carlos Park, in Lee County.

She's recovering from bites to her arm and leg.

A trapper was called to capture and kill the gator, officials said.
