A new report says that the father of an Elkhorn toddler killed by an alligator at Walt Disney World last June reached into the animal's mouth in an attempt to free his son's head from the reptile's jaws.
 
According to the Associated Press, a final report on the death was released Monday by Florida's wildlife agency.
 
The report said that the alligator bit 2-year-old Elkhorn native Lane Graves' head as the boy bent down at the edge of a lagoon at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.
