The Autopsy report of the two-year-old boy who was dragged into a Lagoon by an alligator near a Disney resort in Orlando on Tuesday night has been released. Lane Graves, the son of Matthew and Melissa Graves, was on vacation with his parents in Orlando before the sad incident occurred.
Lane had been playing in the man made lagoon which wasn’t very deep around 9:20pm when the alligator attacked and dragged him underwater. His father tried frantically and wrestled with the alligator to save him, but could not pry the toddler from the alligator’s jaw.
During the search for his body, wildlife officials caught six alligators in the lake and killed them all.16 hours later, the boy’s body was found intact in the lake. His Autopsy report revealed that he died from “drowning and traumatic injuries.” His parents have now issued a statement, saying,
“Words cannot describe the shock and grief our family is experiencing over the loss of our son. We are devastated and ask for privacy during this extremely difficult time. To all of the local authorities and staff who worked tirelessly these past 24 hours, we express our deepest gratitude.”
