    A 90-year-old South Florida woman who survived an alligator attack in her front yard was released from the hospital this week, officials told the Associated Press.

    Mary Briggs, a Lee Memorial Hospital spokesperson, told the Naples Daily News that Margaret Webb was discharged on Wednesday, said the AP.

    Though no other details about her condition were provided, the AP reports that Webb, who was attacked on August 31, had her left leg amputated below the knee.

    Webb was rescued by her neighbor who shot the alligator, the AP reports.

    An eight-foot long alligator was found near Webb's Copeland home on September 5th that had been shot in the head, the AP said. State wildlife officers euthanized the gator.
