* In June 2016, the city of Orlando endured what the ''Daily Telegraph'' [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/when-horror-strikes-the-happiest-place-on-earth/news-story/d31cf402c204d7ccea4fce34f7e089e2 described]] as the Week From Hell, enduring three tragic incidents in the span of five days that each would've been national news had they happened separately. First, on Friday the 10th, Creator/ChristinaGrimmie, the third-place contestant on season 6 of ''Series/TheVoice'', was shot dead by a LoonyFan during a concert at The Plaza Live. The big one happened during the early hours of Sunday the 12th, when Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, was attacked by a gunman who killed 49 people (not counting [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled himself]]) and wounded 53 others in the deadliest mass shooting in US history. The city was still grieving when, on Tuesday the 14th, a two-year-old boy at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Walt Disney World]] was snatched and killed by an alligator. Although the Pulse shooting largely overshadowed the other two in the public consciousness, that didn't make them any less tragic.
