ORLANDO (WGNO) – A week after 2-year-old Lane Graves was dragged and killed by an alligator in a Disney World lagoon, a new video shows a Disney World employee fighting off an alligator just a few feet away from Splash Mountain roller coaster riders.

The video, posted on Inside Edition’s YouTube page, shows a worker using a pool net to force the alligator back into the water, right next to the Splash Mountain coaster.

The gator, however, seemed determined to walk onto land.
