11-Year-Old Boy Dragged Away By Crocodile While Washing Clos In A Dam

Recommended Posts

A search has continued for an 11-year-old boy who was reportedly attacked and dragged away by a crocodile in a dam.


The boy was allegedly dragged by the animal at the Damani Dam in Thohoyandou, Limpopo, South Africa on Saturday afternoon.

The boy and a group of his friends were washing their clothes in the “crocodile infested” dam at around 16:00 when the reptile emerged from the water.

Police say the crocodile suddenly attacked the youngster.

Officials say the police’s search and rescue unit was mobilized immediately. The search was called off as the light faded. It was resumed on Sunday morning.

Limpopo provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba visited the scene where community members had gathered, hoping the search would be successful.


In March, the SABC reported that a young boy was attacked and killed by a crocodile in the Mutale River outside Thohoyandou while playing with friends.
