NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a woman was attacked by an alligator while trimming trees near a lake in Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says 27-year-old woman had been working near the water in North Fort Myers Thursday morning when the 10-foot reptile ambushed her.

Rescue workers transported the woman to a Fort Myers hospital, where she was treated for injuries to both legs.

She was listed in stable condition.
