Wow, this information is absolutely heartbreaking!
Jennifer Venditti Roye, a mom with a young son of her own, took to Facebook on Wednesday morning to share her insider perspective on the horrific alligator attack and to explain her position as to why it could have happened to ANYONE who had visited the Seven Seas Lagoon that day. In fact, Roye's precious son had stood by the lake's edge that same night, just HOURS before poor Lane was snatched.
The concerned mother also spoke with People Magazine about the horrible situation, saying:
"There is a time to be critical when parents are doing drugs and their children get hurt. But this is just not the time. It's heartbreaking. It could have been [my son]. We had been there every night. What a tragedy."
Very good point, Jennifer! A lot of people have given the suffering parents flack for the tragedy but not many know that a movie night had been organized near the lagoon and that a splash-pad water slide was just a few feet away. Apparently little kids had been running back and forth from the slide to the lagoon all night.
