(Siloura River, Papua New Guinea)
The limbs of an 11-year-old boy have been found inside a huge crocodile and his head discovered nearby after he was attacked in Papua New Guinea, a media report says.According to the CrocBITE database, 65 fatal croc attacks in PNG have been chronicled since 1958.
The four-metre croc grabbed the boy, Melas Mero, as he was fishing with his parents on Thursday at the Siloura River in Gulf Province in the south of the country, police commander Lincoln Gerari told PNG's National newspaper.
"The crocodile swept the boy with its tail and then attacked the defenceless child," Gerari said.
The provincial commander said police found two hands, two legs and a hipbone inside the crocodile after they tracked it down and killed it.
