Manuel Abraham, 7, Mexico, was playing with his father with a balloon when a strong wind suddenly carried it to the river bank. It was at the moment he rushed to catch the balloon that the killer crocodile leaped from the water and went for his neck.

All search party efforts were futile as no body was found play

The father and other eyewitnesses rushed to save the boy but it was too late, he was dragged into the river by the predator and most likely eaten, alive. Despite the immediate rescue efforts of military, civil protection groups and fishermen, neither Manuel’s remains nor the crocodile were found.

While speaking to journalists, the grieving father blamed city officials that did not warn about the possibility of crocodile attacks.  He said: “We had come to visit relatives when we decided to go for a walk and play with the balloon. When it blew down to the shore I wasn't worried as no one had told me there were crocodiles around.”

The crocodile which killed and ate the child is the eighth deadly attack in this region but the capture of all crocodiles in the river and adjacent territories has only now finally been ordered.
