Child Feared Dead After Alligator Attack

The father sustained several injuries during his attempt to free his son.

A 7 to 8 foot alligator snatched a two-year-old boy late Tuesday as he was playing in about a foot of water at the Seven Seas Lagoon at the Grand Floridian Hotel at a Disney World resort hotel.

Although the boy’s father rushed to his aid, the massive reptile proved too much and the boy was dragged beneath the water.

The father sustained several injuries during his attempt to free his son.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings put in no uncertain terms that the boy has died telling reporters, "There is no question the family will lose a 2-year-old boy.”
