Walt Disney World Resort logoAccording to Florida officials, they have found the body of the 2-year-old boy who was pulled into the water by an alligator close to a Walt Disney World resort hotel in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, on Tuesday.

The boy’s body was found late on Wednesday. He was pulled into the water by an alligator after he waded into water that was around a foot deep in the Seven Seas Lagoon. The boy’s parents tried to rescue him, and his father had scratches on his hand from trying to save his son.

The lagoon had no swimming signs posted. There were no other people in the water when the attack occurred. The Tioga Freedomist extends our thoughts and prayers to the family of the deceased.
