An Alabama family says they plan to sue Disney World after they claim a trip to Animal Kingdom resulted with the death of their grandmother at the hands of an escaped snake. 

According to CBS, the family's attorney, Matt Morgan from Morgan & Morgan, says the grandmother saw the snake bite the family's son, she then went into cardiac arrest and died. 

Morgan also says that the family plans to sue Disney World.

However, Disney officials are saying the incident played out differently. From WKMG

Disney confirmed to News 6 that the boy was bitten by a snake at the park but said it was a wild, nonvenoumous snake, not part of the the park's collection.

Disney said the boy was treated by a park nurse, who put a Band-Aid on his finger, and the family went back into the park to enjoy the rest of their day.

The incident occurred in October of 2014.
