Alligator Killed SC Woman

, ,

CBS News also has a video, explaining that the woman tried to stop the alligator from taking her dog. It attacked her instead.

Deputies in South Carolina shot and killed an alligator that fatally attacked a woman on Friday, authorities said. CBS affiliate WCSC-TV reports that the coroner identified the victim as Cynthia Covert, 58, of Johns Island.

The officers were called to a pond on Kiawah Island around 5 p.m. and saw the animal attack, the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office said. Covert was found dead and deputies retrieved the alligator’s carcass to help with the investigation.

One Feedback on "Alligator Killed SC Woman"


I’m willing to bet she was a transplant.

One of the articles said that until 2016, there were no recorded alligator deaths in South Carolina. Transplants don’t seem to really understand the danger of getting too close to ponds where there MIGHT be gators.

They don’t realize how fast they are and how seeing they are.

And they believe the developers who tell them about ponds in the subdivision. (Yes, right NOW after they built the subdivision, there may not be gators… But there WILL be.)

The woman killed in Hilton Head was a transplant.

Gators are one of the things I hate about living in South Carolina. I feel for the women’s family.
