A little boy of 14 years old has been found dead inside a crocodile’s stomach after he was pulled from a riverbank and dragged underwater.
The boy identified as Ricky Ganya from Malaysia, had been collecting snails with his family at a riverbank in Kuching, Malaysia on Friday when the crocodile leapt out of the water and went towards him, according to Mirror Online.
The 14-foot animal clamped its jaws around the boy’s foot and dragged him underwater, his aunt called for help and the emergency services arrived, but the boy was gone.
They used a chicken as bait to lure the crocodile back out of the water and it was trapped in a snare, four days later.
Locals cut open the reptile’s stomach and found clothes belonging to Ricky as well as a number of human remains.
The boy’s remains were taken home by the family for a funeral in their village.
