A Little Boy that attacked by alligator found dead

The 2-year-old boy who witnesses said was pulled by an alligator into a lagoon near a Walt Disney World hotel has been found dead by the Orange County dive team, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said at a Wednesday news conference in Orlando.

According to cops, the child was with his parents and siblings when the horrible incedent happened. They were padding in a foot-high water when the boy was grabbed by the alligator and dragged him all the way down to the lagoon at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Orlando called Seven Seas Lagoon. The attack occured at around 9:30pm in the evening according to officials.

His father, hustled and tried to rescue him from alligator but failed and even suffered injuries.

The body of the boy, Lane Graves, was found intact about 1:45 p.m., not far from where the boy was grabbed Tuesday night, Demings said.

He likely drowned, Demings said.

"Of course, the autopsy has to confirm that, but there is likely no question in my mind that the child was drowned by the alligator," Demings said.

Demings said the body was found in murky water perhaps 10 to 15 yards from where the boy was grabbed Tuesday night.

The boy's parents, who are from Elkhorn, Nebraska, were identified as Matt and Melissa Graves.
