Disney World To Honor 2-Year-Old Killed By Alligator On Property

Walt Disney World is planning to honor a Nebraska boy killed by an alligator at its Grand Floridian Resort and Spa in Orlando.

A lighthouse sculpture will soon stand on Disney property in remembrance of 2-year-old Lane Graves. The lighthouse is a symbol used by the Lane Thomas Foundation, which was set up by the Graves family following his death.

One year ago Wednesday, an alligator grabbed Lane, who was playing along the Seven Seas Lagoon beach on the resort's property. The child's father, Matt Graves, jumped into the water to try to free his son. 

The child's body was found 16 hours later and his death was ruled an accident.

The lighthouse will be installed sometime this summer, in an undisclosed location.
