A 2-year-old boy was dragged into the water while wading along the edge of a lagoon at a Walt Disney World resort in Florida. The child’s father tried unsuccessfully to pull the boy back to the surface.
Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office said it was still searching for the boy, while Disney has temporarily closed all of its resort beaches, according to CBS News. Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with Vicki Croke, host of WBUR’s The Wild Life Blog, about the alligator attack.
