Screencap: WKMG

On Tuesday, a 2-year-old child went missing in Orlando after the toddler was dragged into a lake by an alligator near Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Hotel, WKMG reports.

According to police, the alligator dragged the child into the artificial Seven Seas Lagoon at around 9:30 p.m. From the Orlando Sentinel:

Deputies are searching the waters and put crime-scene tape around the water. Multiple emergency vehicles filled the front drive of the Victorian-style hotel and a helicopter hovered overhead.


Some witnesses said they saw the boy along the beach area near the water, but no eye witnesses to him being dragged into the water were available for comment Tuesday night.

As of 11:50 p.m., it was still unclear if the toddler had been found.

“I can’t imagine what those parents are going through,” a tourist told Sentinel reporter Christal Hayes. “It’s been one tough week in Orlando.”
