ORLANDO — Local police sheriff on Wednesday said that searchers had found the body of a 2-year-old kid who was snatched underwater by an alligator near a Disney World resort in the US city of Orlando.
According to the sheriff, the remains of Lane Graves from Nebraska was located at 1:45 p.m. and recovered around 3:30 p.m., more than 16 hours after the boy was pulled away when he was wading water at an artificial lake beach near Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Xinhua news agency reported.
The sheriff said the boy’s body was “completely intact”, and had been turned to the county’s medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
Search for the boy had begun shortly after 9 p.m. on Tuesday after reports that the boy was attacked. The boy’s father tried to fight to get his son back but failed.
The family of four was on vacation at Disney World, one of the world’s most popular theme parks.
