Accident → Child remains retrieved from the crocodile stomach

Video of a man pulling mauled remains of his son from an crocodile's stomach in Malaysia.

This 11-year-old boy was snatched while swimming in a river in Borneo with a friend (Malaysia). A 15-year-old friend told authorities the two took a break from studying and went swimming. He told the croc was "as big as a boat" and moved "as fast as lightning." The report says the teenager fled in fear and shock and cowered in his room until the younger boy's mother came by hours later to ask where her son was. Crocodiles become more aggressive during the breeding season and that the risk of attacks is increasing because more people are venturing into the remote wilderness. And if it has grabbed you hit it repeatedly on its relatively sensitive nose, poke it in the eyes and scream. Gators don't like resistance.
Don't try to pry the jaws open. You won't be able to. Play dead. They stop shaking their prey when they think that it's dead, wedging the body in their pantry for later consumption. This is when you escape. Hopefully. An Australian review of unprovoked crocodile attacks on humans between 1971 and 2004 found that 17 victims of the 62 attacks died. Fatal attacks have generally involved saltwater crocodiles longer than 4 m that have the strength and power required to overpower an adult human.

???, I do agree with you a certain degree of course. I don't believe this small child should've been the individual to have payed the price for the rest of us and our foolish ways. I'd have much preferred Bill O'Reilly, or one of many animal abusers.

a good surgeon just might be able to put it all together again, with help from the Good Lord and lots of Prayers and Fresh Vegetables the kid might just grow up to be a well adjusted human being, he might even look back on this as a bad memory but will always be grateful for the interest in animals and surgery. Praise Jah!
