Lane Graves got dragged away by an alligator while wading on the shallow side of the Seven Seas Lagoon near Disney?s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

The death of a two-year-old boy from an alligator attack at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida earlier this week have caused the public to blame both the child?s parents and the five-star luxury resort where they were vacationing.

It was Tuesday, June 14 when toddler Lane Graves got dragged away by an alligator while wading on the shallow side of the Seven Seas Lagoon near Disney?s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

Because of how the tragedy seemingly could have been avoided, many individuals have been accusing Nick Grave?s parents of being neglectful. Comments on different news pages disdainfully asked where the mother and father from Nebraska, Demings were and how it was possible for them to have not read the warning signages. Some critics posted harsher comments, claiming the Disney alligator attack is something ?that happens when parents do not watch their kids.?

However, blogger and mother-of-four Melissa Fenton blasted those who have been bashing Lane Graves? parents, who she said need comforting more than judgement.

“I’m also a mom trying to raise kids in a social media world that has become very hateful and full of perfect people and full of perfect parents eager to blame,” pointed out the native of Dade City, Florida. “When I saw what people were saying about these parents, I just got to the point where I had had enough.”

Some people are also blaming the security personnel from Disney for the alligator attack. Other than signages around the lagoon that read ?No Swimming,? there were no warning signs specific about alligators.

?A ?No Swimming? sign does not mean ?Beware of Alligators? #DisneyGatorAttack,? a certain @FromtheKatsEye tweeted, which was seconded by other posts.

In a span of just one week, the alligator attack at Disney was the third tragedy to take place in Orlando, Florida. On Saturday June 10, ?The Voice? alum Christina Grimmie was shot right after performing at The Plaza by a 22-year-old gunman who approached her as she was signing autographs. Christina Grimmie made it to the hospital but died hours later.

Just a day later, a gunman identified as Omar Mateen opened fire inside Pulse, a gay nightclub also in Orlando, Florida. The tragedy killed 50 partygoers and injured several more in what is said to be the worst mass shooting in US history.
