MOMENT Crocodile Carried Body Of Drowned 4-Year Old Boy To Rescuers

This is the extraordinary moment a crocodile carried the intact body of a four-year-old boy to rescuers a mile away from where he drowned in a river in Indonesia.

The boy, named locally as Muhammad Ziyad Wijaya – had gone missing two days before near the Jawa Estuary in the province of East Kalimantan.

Startling footage from the Mahakam River in Borneo shows the giant croc swimming through the water carrying the youngster on its back.

Baffled fishermen spotted the 10-foot reptile as it swam nearly 700 feet across the estuary bay towards a boat.

The reptile – normally one of nature’s most ruthless killers – dropped the boy by a boat, where two men are seen pulling the body aboard.

Local media reported there were no bite marks on the body.

Members of the East Kalimantan Search and Rescue Agency received information that a crocodile was carrying the child they had been looking for.

Melkanius Kotta, leader of the team, said: ‘We think the crocodile actually aided in the search for the victim.

‘Nothing is missing. Everything is intact.’

An unnamed bystander filmed the incredible moment as two men inside the boat then took the dead child.

Afterwards, the crocodile disappeared beneath the surface of the water.

It is not yet known what caused Muhammad to drown or if the estuary’s crocodiles had anything to do with his death.
