Baby eaten alive by 11ft crocodile that snatched tot from dad’s canoe

A one-year-old baby boy was eaten by a crocodile despite his father's attempts to fight off the 11ft beast during a horrifying attack.

The aggressive reptile lunged out of the water and grabbed the infant as his 45-year-old dad Moherat was tying up their boat at a beach on the coast of Borneo.

Emergency services were called at approximately 10.30am yesterday (Thursday, December 1) after traumatised witnesses watched on as the crocodile attacked the father and son in Lahad Datu – a town in the Malaysian part of the island.

Fire and rescue chief Sumosoa Rashid told how Moherat was rescued by members of the public after suffering severe injuries to his head and body that are being treated at Lahad Datu Hospital.

But, devastatingly, the dad was unable to save his defenceless little boy with Rashid adding: "Despite the man's best efforts he ended up with numerous bite wounds and could not stop his son being dragged underwater.

There are several viral videos showing how the victim (his child) was attacked by the crocodile and then grabbed before being dragged to a nearby river."

The toddler has yet to be found following search and rescue efforts but is presumed dead.

Crocodile attacks remain rare and isolated, but last month also saw a 12ft crocodile bite off an eight-year-old boy's head whilst he was on a fishing trip with his family in Costa Rica.

His terrified family could only look on helplessly as Julio Otero Fernandez was killed by the animal.

On that attack, an eyewitness said: "It shook him and ripped off his little head. Then it grabbed him again and dragged him under."

In July, meanwhile, a 14-year-old girl was also mauled to death by a crocodile in Indonesia with the attack taking place as she washed her clothes in the river.
