His son Lane had lost his life at the Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Report Spa & Metro while authorities have indicated that Mr. Graves had given his information on the incident to the captain of the fire department.

It seems Matt had related his story of the ordeal while en route to the nearby hospital for care of his own injuries which he took on during the battle with the alligator.

Additionally, the Orlando Sentinel has verified the Mr. Graves account of the gruesome nightmare with the sheriff’s departmental office. Angelo Nieves a representative of the department stated that a bystander had seen an additional alligator begin to engage the man as well.

Furthermore, Captain Tom Wellons had relayed the Graves’ story the following day to the heads of the department the Orlando Sentinel continued.

Despite trappers killing and dissecting five alligators attempting to redeem at least a part of the body- it had, fortunately, been located beneath the water, intact within 24 hours of the search beginning.

Although, alligators are a common nuisance as state records indicate- in the last decade there have been more than 240 removed and destroyed at the resort.

In the aftermath, the resort has improved signage concerning the activity of regional animals.
