Parents of a US toddler killed by an alligator at Florida’s Walt Disney World said that they are “overwhelmed by the support and love they have received from around the world since the death of their son”.
Lane’s parents Matt and Melissa Graves of Omaha, Nebraska, said in a statement they appreciate the support and love from friends in their community and from the public around the country:
“Melissa and I continue to deal with the loss of our beloved boy, Lane, and are overwhelmed with the support and love we have received from family and friends in our community as well as from around the country,” the family said.
“We understand the public’s interest, but as we move forward this weekend, we ask for and appreciate the privacy we need to lay our son to rest. Neither Melissa, myself or anyone from our family will be speaking publicly; we simply cannot at this time.”
