ORLANDO, Fla., June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that a recent tragic incident occurred at a Disney resort, where a 2-year-old boy was grabbed off a resort beach by an alligator and dragged underwater, resulting in the toddler's death.
The incident occurred Tuesday, June 14th, around 9pm, while a family from Nebraska was on the beach at the Disney Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Their 2-year-old boy, Lane Graves, was splashing around in the shallow waters of the lagoon, when an alligator sprang from the water and grabbed him. His father, Matthew Graves, who was nearby, tried to wrestle his son out of the gator's grasp, but was unable to do so. The alligator got away with the boy, which then resulted in an intense search for him in the Seven Seas Lagoon. More than 16 hours later, according to The NY Times, divers found the toddler's body. An autopsy showed he died from drowning and traumatic injuries. Five alligators were trapped and euthanized to determine if they were involved in the toddler's death.
The beach where the gator attack occurred had "No Swimming" signs up, but news sources have indicated that there were no warnings about alligators. The Walt Disney company said Thursday "it will now add gator warnings, but has not said when. The resort's beaches remain closed," according to The NY Daily News. Also according to that article, "Construction workers have started to put up wooden posts connected with rope along the edge of the lagoon where Graves was snatched."
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the news, "We offer our thoughts and prayers for the family who lost their little boy in such a horrific incident. Unfortunately, when incidents such as this one occur, it can take years until there is closure on the case, and we want to remind victims or their loved ones that we are here to assist them if they need help during this difficult time."
