Florida authorities released the 911 calls induced on the night a 2-year-old was killed by an alligator in Walt Disney World.
Lane Graves was playing near the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney’s Grand Floridian Hotel when an alligator apparently pulled him into the water.The boy’s parent tried to save him, but couldn’t, and Lane’s bodyturned up intact the next day.
In light of the attack, Disney is reportedly undertaking new precautions and putting up signage. In another new development, at the least one of the panicky-sounding 911 calls from the night of the attackhas been made public to ABC News.
Because the audio has not yet been released, the transcript of the second 911 bellow, which occurredbetween the operator and a woman believed to be a Disney employee, is softly edited for style and reprinted below from ABC News.
To me, the woman seems like she’s in a panic, but it’s a kind of panic tempered by shock. After all, she would’ve only found out person drowned on Disney property, so she would probably be flipping the hell out.
Read the transcript below, and judge for yourself.
Operator:’ 9-1-1 What’s the place of the emergency? ’
Woman:’ Please come to the Grand Coridi — Floridian please. Someone drowned in the — in the — Seven Seas Lagoon lake.’
