It’s the chilling moment when a crocodile came out of the water, carrying a man missing between his jaws the day after dragging him by lower part of his body.
Darlin Uti, 30, was diving in the river to repair an underwater pipeline near his home in Sulawesi, Indonesia, when the river beast attacked. The victim’s sister, who was on the river bank, tried to help Darlin by pulling the hose he used to breathe underwater.
But the crocodile struggled in the water and disappeared into the depths after sinking its sharp teeth into Darlin’s crotch. The Indonesian authorities immediately began looking for the missing man in the village of Kinapani along the Malaoge River. The search and rescue team detected Uti’s body the next day when the crocodile appeared on the surface, its jaw still clenched around Darlin’s body.
The image shows the crocodile coming out of the water with the lower part of the legs and feet of the man, while the huge crocodile floats before submerging again. Rescuers boarded the boats and finally found Uti’s body intact and returned him to his family for the funeral.
Usmanudin, a member of the team, said: “There was a large wound in Darlin’s groin that could have caused him to bleed and die, but his body was still intact in the crocodile’s mouth.” Usmanudin also said that the Malaoge River was a thriving habitat for crocodiles in the area and warned residents to be careful when entering the water.
Darlin’s death comes two days after another man, Subli, 35, was killed by a crocodile while washing his hands in a channel of the Regency Indragiri Hilir.
According to the Natural Resources Conservation Center, the number of crocodile attacks in Indonesia has increased over the past year.
The villagers are urged to inform the authorities immediately of any crocodile sighting.
