I don't know how you ever recover from the experience this Nebraska family faced at Disney World two nights ago. Two year old Lane Graves was likely drowned when a gator snatched him away from his dad who struggled with the animal to no avail.
But the system will try to calculate the loss.
Accidents happen but there seemed little to alert visitors of the risk, even though the park has staff routinely rounding up errant gators. People on vacation, in that setting would not have the awareness Floridians do of alligators.
For Disney, it was a nightmare of Tylenol scare proportions. Not only did it happen, but it was while media from around the world were there for two shootings.
Losing a child is losing a child, whether its illness, a car crash or a crime. But this demise for Lane was beyond upsetting. Many people I know turned the channel when coverage came on.
