BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.- An elderly woman who drowned last week in a Bonita Springs canal has been identified as 91-year-old Blanche Mazzucco.

Authorities say Friday she hit her head when she fell into the canal behind her home, on the 7700 block of Harbor Drive, and drown.

Neighbors say Mazzucco liked to walk along the seawall on Harbor Drive each afternoon. They suspect she lost her balance and went into the water.

Mazzucco would have turned 92 in a few weeks.
