UPDATE: The body was found around 4pm on 6/15. RIP 🙁Not too long after the Lakeland alligator was found with a human body in its mouth, we’ve got a case of an alligator at the Disney Grand Floridian Resort dragging a 2 year old boy into a lake.

Visiting from Nebraska, the family was relaxing by the water when the alligator attacked. The father was present but unable to save the child in time. Police have been searching and are “very hopeful”
Jacquee Wahler, vice president of Walt Disney World Resort released a statement
“Everyone here at the Walt Disney World Resort is devastated by this tragic accident. Our thoughts are with the family. We are helping the family and doing everything we can to assist law enforcement.”
