Parents of toddler killed by alligator at Disney will not sue beachfenceCBR

The parents of Lane Graves, the 2-year-old killed by an alligator at Walt Disney World, will not be suing the company over their child’s death.

It was widely assumed that Matt and Melissa Graves, Lane’s parents, would sue Disney due to the lack of warning signs near the water. Disney did have signs in place that said no swimming, but there were none that warned of the possibility of alligators.

The Graves released a statement on Wednesday, July 20, saying:
