Crocodile swallows 10-year-old Indonesian girl

KUPANG, Indonesia (AFP) - A wild crocodile swallowed a 10-year-old girl while she played in a river with her father in eastern Indonesia, the second death in the same place in two months, a local official said on Friday. The girl was swimming in Wailolong river on Thursday when the large crocodile suddenly appeared, swallowed her instantly and disappeared into the water, said Mr Viktor Mado Waton, Lembata district head in East Nusa Tenggara province. 'They only found the girl's clothes three hours after the incident, some 200m away from the attack site,' he said, adding that her family members were still trying to find the body. 'Her father saw this shocking scene as he was only 5m away in the water.' He said the father and the girl's teenage brother were hunting turtles in the river while she was playing.
