VACATION BECOMES NIGHTMARE AFTER BOY ATTACKED BY GATOR AT DISNEY WORLD

A vacation of a lifetime turned into a horrifying nightmare for one family visiting Disney World Tuesday evening, as their 2-year-old boy was dragged into a lake by an alligator.

It happened at the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney’s Grand Floridian resort. The boy’s body was recovered Wednesday afternoon.

University of Alabama Professor of Biological Science Stephen Secor said it’s important to take precautions and know your surroundings whenever you’re near any body of water.

If you do see an alligator, Secor said keep your distance and don’t make any sudden movements. Alligators in Alabama rarely approach humans on land or in the water.
