the body of 2 year old lane greaves attacked and killed by an alligator in orlando florida has been found

Boy eaten by Alligator — This is the saddest news ever as authorities recovered the body of the 2-year-old boy dragged into the water by an alligator near a Disney resort, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Wednesday.Members of the sheriff's office dive team located the remains of the toddler, identified as Lane Graves, around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, nearly 17 hours after the reptile snatched the boy, Demings said. The body was discovered intact, he added.Demings identified the parents as Matt and Melissa Graves of
Elkhorn, Neb. The family was vacationing at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa in Orlando when the attack occurred in a man-made lake."It was a tough message to deliver to them," the sheriff said. He added the parents asked him to thank all the members of the public who prayed for the safe discovery of their little boy.



Alligator attacks in Florida.I am just totally heartbroken for the parents,imagine having to live with this guilt and tragedy of seeing your little boy dragged away by an alligator never to return alive?Gosh,its the most dreadful thing ever,such a terrible thing to happen.
Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger expressed his condolences in a statement released on Wednesday."As a parent and a grandparent, my heart goes out to the Graves family during this time of devastating loss," Iger said. "My thoughts and prayers are with them, and I know everyone at Disney joins me in offering our deepest sympathies."The 7- to 8-foot reptile grabbed the boy late Tuesday as he was playing in about a foot of water at the Seven Seas Lagoon at the resort. His father, who quickly rushed to the boy's aid, could not fend off the alligator and received minor injuries to his hand.

"We know that that happened and it is certainly not survivable at this point for him to have been submerged for that period of time."There are posted signs warning guests against swimming in the lake, Demings said.Nick Wiley, executive director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which spearheaded the search, said the American alligator was feeding and likely confused the small child for a dog or a raccoon. The gators do not typically feed on humans.“People – even small people – are not their typical prey,” he said.
