In a moving expression of solidarity with the parents of 2-year-old Lane Graves, parents have begun posting photos of their own children playing right where the child was attacked by an alligator.
“My heart goes out to the family who lost their son at Disney this week. It was on this very beach, just a few short months ago, that we were walking and taking pictures,” Jared Lyons wrote with this photo. “You can even see the ‘No Swimming’ sign in the background. I can’t imagine what they are going through with such a tragic loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.”
Disney, which plans to post alligator warning signs, previously had no-swimming signs. Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Lane was playing right along the water’s edge – not swimming – when the attack occurred.
Earlier in the week, another mom made headlines by sharing photos of her children playing in the same spot where Lane was killed.
Visitors to the resort area where the boy was attacked have also begun posting images that show a rainbow over the area.
One poster saw an image of a face – and maybe an angel – in the clouds.
“This is the pic I took took today overlooking the spot in the lagoon where the boy was found at the Grand Floridian,” this poster wrote. “So after looking at this AGAIN, another friend has pointed out the face in the upper left hand corner. Cold chills. Say what you will, but I know exactly what I believe those to be.”
“Rainbow over the hotel (where) the 2 year old little boy tragically passed away this week,” Andrea Racca wrote with this beautiful image:
“We took a moment to stop by where such a tragic moment happened that people will talk about for years to come,” Laurenn Bonner wrote with this image. “I said a prayer, shed a tear and this beautiful rainbow popped up.”
