In the Indonesian district of Kutai Kartanegara, a four-year-old boy playing on the banks of the Mahakam River went missing on January 18. The search for the boy was fruitless. Two days after the tragedy, the child’s body was brought to the emergency services by a five-meter crocodile.

Four-year-old Muhammad Ziyad Wijaya drowned on January 18 while playing on the banks of the Mahakam River. Two days after the tragedy, rescuers looking for the boy’s body received an unusual call. – This morning, during the second day of the search, around seven o’clock, the team received information from the family (of the deceased – ed.) that they had noticed a crocodile carrying (on its back – ed.) a human body. After (gad – ed.) left it, it turned out that it was the child we were looking for – said Basarnas Melkianus Kotta, head of the East Kalimantan Search and Rescue Bureau.

The incident happened about a mile and a half from where the boy had disappeared two days earlier. The incident with the crocodile was recorded by one of the people on the lifeboat. The video shows that the reptile swimming towards the rescue boat is calm, showing no signs of aggression. When he reaches the motorboat, he dives deeper into the water, leaving the boy’s corpse on the surface, and then swims away. Then the rescuers approach the floating body and pull it onto the boat.
