2. Carter thought he had only weeks: Former President Jimmy Carter said he believes that both presidential candidates are "quite unpopular," but he's made a choice. "I'm a Democrat, and I'll be voting Democratic." Carter also said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press that when he received a diagnosis of cancer in his liver last year he believed he had only weeks to live. "Now I feel pretty certain about my cure and the cancer being in remission, but the doctors are still keeping an eye on me," he said.
3. Boy's death at Disney: A report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released Monday said the death of a 2-year-old boy killed by an alligator behind a Walt Disney World hotel was an incident that would have been difficult to predict. The attack that took the life of Lane Graves was a predatory event, the report said, not one caused by human behavior. The Graves family was on the beach to watch a movie and their son was getting a bucket of water from the lake to make sandcastles when the alligator grabbed the boy. According to the report, the boy's father went into the water to try to get the child out of the alligator's mouth, but was unsuccessful.
