An investigation has been launched over a woman killed by alligators on a Florida golf course.

The elderly woman, according to officials, reportedly lived near the course and was seen falling into a pond at the Boca Royale Golf and Country Club

The woman reportedly struggled to get out of the pond before alligators attacked her and pulled her underneath the water's surface. 

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have vowed to capture the alligators responsible for the woman's death as the investigation continues.
