BUSHNELL, Fla. - A Florida man was airlifted to the hospital after he was attacked by an alligator less than an hour away from where a 2-year-old boy was killed by a gator at Walt Disney World.
The Sumter County Sheriff's Office posted a picture of the alligator on its Facebook page on Tuesday evening.
The unnamed 58-year-old man was attacked by the alligator alongside a road in Bushnell.
The alligator was estimated to be up to 9-feet long.
The victim, whose condition is currently unknown, suffered injuries to his right leg.
The attack comes a week after Lane Graves, 2, was attacked by an alligator while vacationing with his family at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
Graves' body was later found intact in the Seven Seas Lagoon.
