Cape Town - A Zimbabwean teenage boy was reportedly attacked by a crocodile while bathing in a flooded river with his brother in Masvingo recently.
According to a newzimbabwe.com report, the brother, 15, watched in horror as his 13-year-old sibling was devoured by the reptile.
The crocodile emerged from the river and immediately attacked the unsuspecting boy, who was standing on a rock, before dragging him under the water.
No search has been carried out so far as police divers judged it too risky to dive into the crocodile-infested river, according to the report.
Crocodile attacks are common during the rainy season in rural
Zimbabwe, but many go unreported.
