Alligator Attacks 2 Year Old Child [VIDEO]

By

Police in Orlando are searching for a 2-year-old boy who was dragged into a lagoon at a Disney resort by an alligator. The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Seven Seas Lagoon in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said. By 1 a.m., after nearly four hours of searching, the boy had still not been found. He had been sitting on a sandy area with his parents and two other siblings when the alligator attacked him, police said, and the father tried to wrestle the boy from the animal and was minorly injured but was unsuccessful. The mother also went into the water to try to find him. Police vowed to continue searching through the night with the help of Fish and Wildlife workers. Orange County Sheriff Jeff Demings said, “The sad reality of it is it’s been several hours and we’re not likely going to recover a live body.” Officials are using sonar, marine units, and an alligator trapper. They do not plan to stop searching until he is found.
