Australian police find body of man taken by crocodile
SYDNEY (AFP) - Police on Monday recovered the body of a man taken by a large crocodile in northern Australia with rangers confident they have killed the animal responsible.
Mr Sean Cole, 26, was snatched on Saturday in front of at least 15 traumatised onlookers as he swam with a friend across a muddy river that has one of the highest densities of saltwater crocodiles in the world.
Northern Territory police senior constable Wade Rodgers said his body was found early Monday in the area where he was last seen.
"Our thoughts are with the family during this very difficult time," he said.
