Actually, the lady lived, though she lost her leg.

When I was a young man I swam in lakes that had resident populations of gators, back then if you didn't bother them they wouldn't bother you. But too many people decided it would be fun to feed the alligators, and now you wouldn't find me swimming in those lakes on a bet.

A little boy was killed by a gator here in SE FL not long ago. (He got out of his kayak to portage; his father was with him but couldn't save him from the gator's jaws. The dad went nuts, as you can imagine.)

Gators will normally avoid humans, but once fed by humans, they then target humans and become very dangerous.

While we're at it, don't feed birds, either. They become dependent on humans and drop their crap all over your RV. When you leave, they starve because they forget how to hunt in the wild.
