On Tuesday, young Lane Graves was snatched by the reptile while walking with his parents along the lagoon at Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Tragically, the toddler’s body was recovered the next day, and the autopsy revealed that he died from a combination of drowning and traumatic injuries.
And now, the resort is taking measures to make sure this terrible tragedy never happens again.
On Friday, photos surfaced on Twitter (above), showing that construction workers are putting a fence around the water’s edge.

As of right now, the barrier only consists of poles with rope strung between them, but that’s not all the corporation has done in the wake of this horrible incident.
The beach remains closed, for the time being, and officials have put up signs that say:
Alligators and snakes in area
Stay away from the water
Do not feed the wildlife”
Disney World Resort Vice President Jacquee Wahler explained that these signs are temporary, and the company is working on some more permanent fixes.
He also added that Disney is “reinforcing training with our Cast for reporting sightings and interactions with wildlife and are expanding our communication to Guests on this topic.”
Hopefully this helps prevent future attacks.
Our hearts are with Lane’s loved ones after their indescribable loss.
