Body of Boy Dragged Into Lagoon By Alligator Near Disney World Found

Florida police say they found the body of a two-year-old boy dragged into a lagoon by an alligator.

Crews were searching through the lagoon for any sign of the boy.

Lane Graves was vacationing with his family at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

He was walking along the shore of the Seven Seas Lagoon Tuesday evening when an alligator dragged him under.

His parents tried to get him back, but the alligator got away.

Police say they knew it was a recovery and not a rescue.

The Orange County sheriff says the body will be sent to the medical examiner for an autopsy, although he believes the boy drowned.

The beaches at Disney are all currently shut down.
