The 911 call regarding a South Carolina woman who was attacked by an alligator has been released. “My wife was attacked by an alligator in the backyard,” her frantic husband told the 911 operator. He told the dispatcher that she had been bitten badly in her leg and hand. “It was the right leg and her right hand is almost chewed off,” he said. Deborah Cook, 68, was walking her dog near a pond on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina when the nightmare happened.
