Australian Man Taken By Crocodile In National Park

A 62-year-old Australian man was boating with his family in the Kakadu national park when he was attacked by a crocodile. According to The Guardian, the crocodile took the man right in front of his family, prompting a furious search.

The man was attacked while on a boat in what is known as the South Alligator River. Also on the boat were his wife, son and daughter-in-law, who were unharmed in the attack. Northern Territory police tracked down two crocodiles the following day. The crocodiles were shot and killed, and the man’s remains were inside one of the crocodiles.

"I believe the son was involved in the initial search for his father, which is obviously traumatising and anyone's heart would go out to the family in that sort of incident," a police spokesperson said.

This is the second death this year in the same national park as a result of a crocodile attack, with the first one claiming the life of a 12-year-old boy who had been swimming with friends.
