According to eyewitness, the baby’s dad, in a frantic effort to rescue the toddler dived at the alligator but the beast shoved him aside with his mouth leaving him with deep cuts. The panicking mum ran some distance into the water but stopped and watched as the beast retreated into the lagoon with her baby in mouth.

Authorities are not giving up efforts in finding the killer alligator as more than 50 officials are involved in the ongoing search (and rescue) for the baby’s remains.
