Walt Disney World to Post Alligator Warning Signs after Boy’s Death

Walt Disney World Resort plans to install alligator warning signs in the area where a two-year-old boy was killed. Police divers recovered the body of Lane Graves on June 15th from the Seven Seas Lagoon where he had been snatched by an alligator as he played at the water’s edge the night before.

The resort had ‘No Swimming’ signs where the boy was killed, but did not specifically mention alligators. A source with knowledge of the situation said the resort now plans to install signs explicitly warning of the dangerous animals. The boy was grabbed by the reptile at the water’s edge at about 9:15 PM on June 14th while his family, on vacation from Omaha, Nebraska, relaxed on the shore nearby, authorities have said. His parents, Matt and Melissa Graves, tried to save the child but were unable to free him from the alligator’s grip.
