Harrowing video footage shows a giant crocodile carrying a man’s body across a lagoon in Mexico.
filming Posted by journalist Porfirio Ibarra on Thursday shows a handful of horrified onlookers filming the horrifying scene on the otherwise still waters of Laguna del Carpintero in Tampico Tamaulipas.
“Oh fk,” a viewer keeps gasping in Spanish as the giant crocodile slowly swims by with the half-naked body already missing its left forearm and foot.
The crocodile has its jaws clamped on the right shoulder and side of the unidentified man’s head, who is slowly being carried face down.
It appears to be at least three times the size of his prayer, suggesting it could be as long as 18 feet.
“Presumably the man entered the lagoon to swim and was attacked by the animal,” wrote Ibarra, a local magazine editor who is also a stringer for The Associated Press.
Another journalist who shared the clip, Jorge Becerril, said officers later pulled the remains of the man’s body out of the water and “protected” the crocodile.
“Bathing is expressly forbidden in this lagoon”, he wrote.
Channel 13 Chiapas shared photos how his body is carried away and the crocodile is pulled out of the water with its jaws tied together.
