According to the sheriff’s office, the boy was dragged into the Seven Seas Lagoon, a man-made lake, near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa on Tuesday around 9:30 p.m. local time.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said the family was vacationing from Nebraska with three children. The family was relaxing on the shoreline when the alligator suddenly attacked the toddler.
The gator is estimated to be between four and seven feet long. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has taken four gators out of the water, but there is no evidence the organization caught the right gator.
