An elderly woman in Florida had her arm ripped off in an alligator attack in a canal and is in critical condition. It's not clear how 84-year-old Carol Hough of Leesburg ended up in the canal that runs behind her mobile home. Her neighbor says she saw hough flailing in the four-foot deep water. The gator will be killed after its caught. Earlier this summer in Florida, a teen lost part of his arm to an alligator and an air boat captain lost a hand while feeding a gator.
