A new incident analysis into the death of Lane Graves at Disney World in Florida reveals the tragic last moments of the little boy before he was attacked by an alligator.

According to the report, the Graves family was enjoying "movie time" at the Disney Grand Floridian Resort on June 14.

"Two-year-old Lane Graves was building sand castles," reads the report. "He was using a bucket to get water from the Seven Seas Lagoon and pouring it on the sand."

The analysis reveals Graves "was in the water not more than ankle deep" and his dad, Matt Graves, "was with him a few feet away."

"Lane bent down with the bucket to retrieve water" and "an alligator seized Lane by the head and neck, one tooth puncturing the top of his skull, and one puncturing the center of the neck," reveals the disturbing description of the deadly attack. "The alligator began dragging Lane into deeper water."

Graves' father "saw the alligator had Lane and went into the water," continued the report. "He put his hands into the alligator's mouth and tried to pull it open."

Sadly, "the alligator thrashed and broke Matt's grasp and went under the water. The alligator released Lane, who remained submerged near the attack location."

As Radar reported, Graves autopsy showed he died from a combination of drowning and his wounds suffered in the grisly incident.
