LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — A 2- year old boy was dragged into water by an alligator near Disney's upscale Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and search has continued this Wednesday morning for the boy and the alligator authorities said
The effort was still considered a "search and rescue operation," said Jeff Williamson, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

"We are very hopeful," he said at a morning news conference. "Sometimes you get the worst, but we are hoping for the best."
The family of five from Nebraska was on vacation and wading in a lake around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday when the attack happened in an area where "no swimming" signs were posted, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings told a news conference earlier in the morning. The father tried to rescue his son but was unsuccessful, Demings said.
