Parents of child killed in alligator attack are not going to sue Disney

The parents of a child killed by an alligator at a Disney resort in Florida issued a statement Wednesday saying they will not sue the company.
“We know that we can never have Lane back, and therefore, we intend to keep his spirit alive through the Lane Thomas Foundation. It is our hope that through the foundation we will be able to share with others the unimaginable love Lane etched in our hearts,” said Matt and Melissa Graves, the parents of 2-year-old Lane Graves, who died after being dragged away by an alligator at a Disney resort in June.

  1. Since I live in Florida and have for 16 years…I can easily see how this would happen. The way that place is set up they have lawn chairs along the waters edge kind of like a beach setting. The reports we saw here said he was walking a long the water not swimming…and they did not have alligator warning signs. We have a Gator at my job…no signs posted…we got an email but no signs. Saw a dude having his lunch along the water…he could have been a victim. Disney stroked a check….but it still wont bring that baby back.

  2. I think Disney compensated them.

    But if I booked this “resort” got to my vacation and saw alligator signs, I’m checking out PERIOD!!!! BYE!!!

    I’ve never understood how they saw these signs and still didn’t watch their

  3. Signs were posted….Not to mention it was dark…who lets their child near water potentially with gators and snakes go near there….I guess they won’t sue….for what????

  4. There were no swimming signs posted but why was the water open to the public….in seeing photos of the area that water looks like it had alligators in it so folks gotta use common sense…hard call to make

    1. Probably. I can’t see them not receiving some type of settlement. If they sue them it could mean really bad business for Disney. They are then admitting that the park is not safe. Give them $35 million, they sign a silence clause, and life is good for Disney.

  5. Yep I would sue or ask for a settlement. The money won’t bring the baby back but it will help with the costs of counseling.
