The gold and blue statue, marked with two stars, was placed near where the June 14, 2016, tragedy happened. He and other children were building sandcastles, and Lane was collecting water in a bucket. The statue has a plaque that reads: "Presented to the Lane Thomas Foundation". But he was snatched by an alligator a few moments later.
