Authorities in Orlando are searching for a two-year-old boy who was dragged into the water by an alligator near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings says a family of five from Nebraska was on vacation and wading in a lake when the attack happened. He said the father tried to rescue the boy.

Mr Demings said more than 50 law enforcement personnel are searching the Seven Seas Lagoon for the boy and will keep looking.

He added there have been no other recent reports of similar alligator attacks at the lake.
