Witness calls 911 after boy dragged in alligator attack

 

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Emergency dispatchers received two 911 calls in the moments after an alligator dragged a 2-year-old Nebraska boy into the Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World.

Spokesman Tim O’Toole at the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which handles calls at Disney World, says the first call came from the “drop phone” at a lifeguard stand, and no voice can be heard. The second came from a woman who said someone was drowning in the lake at the Grand Floridian Resort.

Rescue crews arrived shortly thereafter on the evening of June 14. The body of Lane Graves was found the next day in murky water not far off the beach.

The child will be buried on Tuesday.
