Disney Alligator Attack: RIP 2-Year-Old Nebraska Boy Lane Graves. ワニに襲われた2歳児、遺体で発見 米ディズニー旅行が一転悲劇に

説明:AFP=時事】楽しいディズニーリゾートでの家族旅行が一転、悲劇に──。米フロリダ(Florida)州オーランド(Orlando)のテーマパーク「ウォルト・ディズニー・ワールド・リゾート(Walt Disney World Resort)」のホテル前にある人工湖でワニに襲われ、行方不明になっていた男児(2)が、遺体で発見された。地元警察当局が15日、発表した。

 オレンジ(Orange)郡のジェリー・デミングス(Jerry Demings)保安官は記者団に対し、「男の子の遺体はまったく損傷がなかった…遺体は検視のため、オレンジ郡の医療局に引き渡された」と語った。男児はネブラスカ(Nebraska)州在住のレーン・グレーブズ(Lane Graves)君と特定されたという。

 現場となったのはディズニー・グランド・フロリディアン・リゾート&スパ(Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa)前の湖。14日午後9時(日本時間15日午前10時)ごろ、深さ約30センチの浅瀬で遊んでいた男児が、ワニによって水中に引きずり込まれた。当局によると、父親がワニと格闘したが、ワニは男児と共に水中に消えた。ワニの体長は推定1.2~2.1メートルと報じられている。

 湖は人工だが自然湖とつながっており、フロリダに多く生息するワニは陸地を移動することができることから、湖にワニがいたことも説明がつく。

 ワニの襲撃による死亡事故は、ディズニー・ワールドの45年の歴史で初めて。同園は事故を受け、リゾート内のビーチやマリーナを閉鎖したと発表した。

 オーランドでは12日、同性愛者向けのナイトクラブで49人が死亡する米史上最悪の銃乱射事件が起きたばかりだった。【翻訳編集】 AFPBB News

Disney Alligator Attack: 2-Year-Old Nebraska Boy’s Body Recovered ‘Intact’

The 2-year-old boy who witnesses said was pulled by an alligator into a lagoon near a Walt Disney World hotel has been found dead by the Orange County dive team, Sheriff Jerry Demings said at a Wednesday news conference.

The body of the boy, Lane Graves, was found intact about 1:45 p.m., not far from where the boy was grabbed Tuesday night, Demings said. His body had only a few puncture wounds, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

He likely drowned, Demings said.

“Of course, the autopsy has to confirm that, but there is likely no question in my mind that the child was drowned by the alligator,” Demings said.

Demings said the body was found in 6 feet of murky water perhaps 10 to 15 yards from where the boy was attacked.

The boy’s parents, who are from Elkhorn, Nebraska, were identified as Matt and Melissa Graves.

Matt Graves is the chief data officer at Omaha Infogroup, a company that provides technology solutions, CNN affiliate KETV reported.

Demings said the Graves were distraught yet relieved that this was not a protracted search.

He said he brought a priest with him when breaking the news to the parents, who are Catholic.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Executive Director Nick Wiley said the alligator may have already been caught, but that has not yet been confirmed.

“We’re going to make certain that we have the alligator that was involved, and that we remove it from the lake,” he said.

Forensics teams will try to determine whether one of the alligators already taken from the lake is the one that dragged off the boy. If not, the search for alligators in the lake will continue.

The boy’s family was at a movie night outdoors at the Grand Floridian resort when around 9 p.m. the boy waded into about a foot of water in a lagoon, authorities have said. Witnesses, including the boy’s horrified parents, tried to save him. His father jumped in and tried to pry the gator’s mouth open. His mother jumped in, too.

But it was too late. The child was dragged underwater in the Seven Seas Lagoon, witnesses told authorities. The lagoon is connected to a series of canals that feed into large bodies of water, Wiley said earlier.
