Alligator drags toddler into water near Disney resort - father tried to grab the child [source]

Tragic but what was a child doing near water with alligators in it? I've never been to Walt Disney World so I don't know whether this family was in this particular area, but that place is notorious for having living alligators.

One question to our American members. Absolutely no offense but; I never asked this question as it sounded kinda dumb in the first place but how do you guys feel about the 'gringo' appellative? I never bothered to ask if you find it demeaning or derogatory. Some American people I know joke about it but in the general context it might be good to know.

It was a no swimming zone, the toddler and family where on the beach as many other families where. From what I heard the baby was only about 1 to 2 feet in the water, trying to imagine what it's like to be a pare T, idk if I would say no to my child (if I had one) just barley going in. I think this is more unfortunate than the parents being idiots. They could've been smarter but I see their reasoning

It's pretty mild. Most people wouldn't care, unless you were really trying to sound offensive. But Spanish has so many cool ways to insult someone, I'd be more disturbed at the choice of gringo than anything.

But there's always someone who will choose to be offended by something. For those people I double down.

I get what you're saying, it depends a lot on circumstances I guess. I mean, it's a no swimming zone for a reason... although it should specify how dangerous it is (if it doesn't). Like I said, that place is notorious for having live alligators so I would think twice before breaching a no swimming zone. I live on the other side of the world, never set foot outside Europe and I've heard about those animals there.

I don't want to blame anyone or anything, that's not the right thing to do after a tragedy. But unfortunately, not all tragic situations are accidents. I don't know the exact circumstances but there is definitely someone who needs to learn a lesson from this, be it the parents or the park attendants.

The alligator dragged him to deeper water, he drowned... that's how I understood it the first time.
Some animalists will claim that the alligator tried to save him and didn't want to harm him...

D, in the whole world, you will never find a place wHere the last thing you would expect to find is an alligator. This is akin to looking out for a Gorilla in Rupert Murdoch's new penthouse.

So?
It's a wild animal that acts on instinct... Of course it wanted to harm the kid... But what do you want to achieve with that comment? Killing the animal? Revenge? Will that bring back the kid?

No, that wasn't the point... it's related to the gorilla shooting case and other similar cases. People are blaming the parents again... people are experts in everything.

Well... They maybe were a little careless, but I think it's up to the authorities to decide that...
I think it's wrong however to blame the animals...

Nobody is blaming the animals but people are making human and animal lives matter equal or worst...
If a kid can climb and fall inside of a cage where a savage animal is kept, you can blame that one on the safety of that place too... same thing goes for this case, no warning signs of danger or anything.
