Close friend remembers woman killed by gator in W. Ashley

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - A close friend of the woman killed by an alligator in a West Ashley pond is sharing her memories of her friend Friday night.

The shocking discovery hitting home for a woman who remembers her former supervisor and friend.

"We had a pleasant working relationship, it wouldn't have been like that if it wasn't for Bonnie Walker," said Becky Rischer, a friend and former co-worker of Walker's."What a great person. She was sweet. What a good boss she was."

Walker retired as an admissions supervisor at the old downtown Charleston Saint Francis hospital.

While some close to her are calling it a tragic way to die, officials say the reported gator killing is the first in state's history.

The investigation is ongoing.
