Gov. Ricketts Reacts To Alligator Attack On Nebraska 2 Year Old

ORLANDO- Governor Pete Ricketts says his heart goes out to the family of a 2-year-old boy who was snatched by an alligator while on vacation at a Disney resort in the Orlando, Florida, area.

The Nebraska family’s name has not been released, and Ricketts’ office says that all they know was what they have seen in media reports. The Orange County sheriff says the family of five from Nebraska was wading in the Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World on Tuesday evening when an alligator dragged the child into the water.

Authorities are still searching for the child.
