They Were Looking For This Man When A Croc Gave Them A Gut-Wrenching Surprise

On July 18, a man in Berau, Indonesia, met a horrible and grisly fate when he stepped into the Lempake River with his friends.

The 41-year-old, named Syarifuddin, had been bathing in the water that evening when, according to the people who were with him, a saltwater crocodile lunged and dragged him away. Along with his relatives, police searched for him that night. Unfortunately, they came up empty-handed — but they learned what had become of him the next day.

On Wednesday morning, villagers saw something floating in the water towards them. It was being pushed along by a crocodile.
