Mom shares chilling photos of her son taken at exact spot of alligator snatching 30 minutes earlier
On Tuesday night, the unthinkable happened.
A 2-year-old boy on vacation at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, was snatched by an alligator as he played at the water's edge in front of his family, and dragged into a lagoon despite his parents' best efforts to save him.
His body was recovered the next day by police divers, providing a tragic end to the search.
On Wednesday, 41-year-old mom Jennifer Venditti shared chilling photos on Facebook of her and her 3-year-old son Channing, standing at the exact spot where Lane Graves was snatched just 30 minutes later.
"I can't imagine anyone could sleep knowing that the helicopter was searching for a missing child taken by an alligator," Venditti wrote.
Although Venditti told FOX that there are "no swimming" signs posted around the area, she said there was nothing that warned guests of the presence of alligators.
Venditti being posted, Venditti's story has been shared over 140,000 times, and it carries with it a very important lesson for those blaming Lane Graves' parents for their child's death.
She ended her post with the hashtag #judgelesspraymore, as a reminder that the tragic occurrence could have so easily happened to any other family -- even her own.
"I've already seen posts criticizing the parents. I can assure you alligators were not on my mind at all when Channing was in the water," she wrote. "It's a tiny beach, surrounded by pools, water slides, a restaurant and a fire pit. I can't conceive that an alligator would be in such a busy, small space."
