The crocodile did not pose any threat to the child. There was no injury on the child’s body. Members of the East Kalimantan Search and Rescue Agency were informed that a crocodile was carrying the body of the missing child on its back. The members were shocked to hear this information. ‘The body of the drowned child was brought safely by the crocodile from such a distance. It is unbelievable that he was not harmed at all,’ said the head of the search and rescue agency. He said that this incident is very surprising.
The crocodile swam and reached the boat. There were two fishermen in the boat. As soon as they took the boy’s body in the boat, the crocodile went into the water, the eyewitness said. The child’s body is suspected to be due to drowning. Preliminary investigation has revealed that the boy may have fallen into the river while playing.
