Graves Family Releases Statement After Alligator Kills Their Son at Disney World

The Graves family has released a statement mourning the death of their son Lane Graves after an alligator snatched him by a lagoon at a Disney World hotel.

The two-year-old boy died from drowning and traumatic injuries, an autopsy report concluded. He was dragged into the lagoon by the alligator and his body was found fully intact the next day.

“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,” the family said in a statement to ABC News. “To all of the local authorities and staff who worked tirelessly these past 24 hours, we express our deepest gratitude.”
