NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a 90-year-old southwest Florida woman who survived being attacked by an alligator has been released from the hospital.
Lee Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Mary Briggs tells the Naples Daily News that Margaret Webb was discharged Wednesday. No additional information about Webb's condition was released.
Webb's left leg was amputated below the knee after an alligator attacked her Aug. 31 in the front yard of her Copeland home.
A neighbor rescued Webb and shot the alligator.
State wildlife officers euthanized an alligator with a bullet wound to its head found Sept. 5 near Webb's home.
