People Are Posting Pics Of Their Kids Where The Alligator Tragedy Happened

Parents are sharing eerie pictures of their children playing in the same lagoon where 2-year-old Lane Graves was snatched by an alligator on Tuesday.

Images are being uploaded on Facebook as a sign of solidarity after the parents became the subject of abuse online.

One parent, Janice Croze, posted a picture of her daughter playing in the water. She said,

If anyone wants to judge those parents for letting their toddler play near the water at Disney World, here is Olivia playing on that beach.

Jennifer Venditti took pictures in the exact location where Lane was taken just an hour before the incident.

Lane was on a family vacation when the alligator incident took place. His father ran into the water in an attempt to save him, but to no avail.

An 18-hour search ensued, involving boats, helicopters and even a dive team.

Lane's body was recovered intact and sent for an autopsy.

Officials say that four alligators were taken out of the lagoon and euthanized, but no evidence was found to help determine if one of them was responsible for the attack.

All Disney World Resort beaches were shut down on Wednesday as a precaution.
