Authorities say they have recovered the body of a 2-year-old boy who was snatched by an alligator at a Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings announced the recovery at a press conference Wednesday. The announcement came about 19 hours after the toddler’s father reported witnessing the horrific attack along the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.
Demings identified the parents as Matt and Melissa Graves, and the child as Lane.
“There’s no reason for us to believe that the body that was recovered is not that of Lane Graves,” Demings said.
Demings said the child’s body was found completely intact “within the immediate area of where he was last seen.”
“There’s likely no question in my mind that the child was drowned by the alligator,” he said. Continue [HERE].
