Another sad story from Florida this week.
A 2-year-old boy was dragged by an alligator into the water at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Tuesday night.
He was part of a Nebraskan family of five relaxing on the shoreline. The boy’s father tried to pry open the gator’s jaws, but was unsuccessful.
Florida Fish and Wildlife are conducting a search and rescue operation in the Seven Seas Lagoon, but have yet to locate the boy.
There are no signs indicating to vacationers that alligators lurk in the water, but there is signage declaring that visitors are not to swim in the man-made lake.
