Swimmer Dragged to His Death by 16ft Crocodile as His Friends Look on in Horror


A swimmer was dragged away to his death by a 16ft crocodile as his friends looked on in horror.

The 26-year-old and 14 others were on a birthday trip when he ignored warning signs and went in a saltwater crocodile-infested river.

Police said witnesses were treated for shock and added: “They saw him being grabbed. They’re distraught, it’s very disturbing seeing that.”

Rangers searching for the local man’s body on Mary River at Annaburroo, northern Australia, have shot dead several crocodiles.
