The father of a 2-year-old boy killed by an alligator at Walt Disney World last month told authorities that two gators were involved in the attack, the Orlando Sentinel reported Sunday.
The second gator attacked Matt Graves as he tried to keep the first gator from pulling 2-year-old Lane Graves into the Seven Seas Lagoon near the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, according to records made public by the Reedy Creek Fire Department, which serves Disney World.
A Reedy Creek fire captain said the second gator’s teeth had cut the elder Graves and that he would need stitches and antibiotics following the June 15 attack.
A June 16 search found five alligators in the lagoon. All were killed. Disney World since has posted signs warning guests of alligators and snakes near its lakefronts, the Sentinel said.
