By  | 



Local law enforcement is searching for a young child who was dragged into the water by an alligator near Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, according to the Florida Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

The 2-year-old child was dragged into the Seven Seas Lagoon about 9:20 p.m., Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Rose Silva said.

Deputies are searching the waters and put crime-scene tape around the water. Multiple emergency vehicles filled the front drive of the Victorian-style hotel.

Silva said the child has not been found. The search continues with cars, boats, helicopters, and drones flying overhead.

There have been a string of alligator-related incidents in Florida lately, with this being the worst of them all. We hope it ends well. We’ll keep you updated.
