crocodileMEXICO – A 7-year-old boy playing near the Barra Santa Ana estuary was eaten alive by a crocodile in front of his horrified father.

It happened on Sunday afternoon as Manuel Abraham and his father played with a soccer ball at the edge of the river. After the ball rolled into the water, the boy instinctively ran to pick it up. That’s when the crocodile struck.

According to witnesses, the crocodile sprang from underneath the water and clamped down on the poor kid’s head. It then dragged him into the water in front of his helpless father and onlookers.

Despite attempts to rescue the boy, Abraham and the crocodile disappeared into the water. The boy’s remains have yet to be found, but not because of a lack of trying.

After the attack, city officials deployed the military, civil protection groups and fisherman to find the crocodile and the boy’s remains. This reaction probably stems from the fact that this was the eighth crocodile attack in the Bara Santa Ana estuary in the last two years.

The boy’s father said that no one warned him about the dangers of crocodiles in the water, but there are reportedly signs posted in the area warning people that the water is infested with them.

Speaking of a young boy being eaten by large, predatory, semi-aquatic reptile – anyone remember when little Donald gets eaten in the 1980 movie ALLIGATOR? Goddamn, I love that movie.
