A frantic search was launched, with his family using motor boats to scour the river for any trace of him.

“He was found around 11:30 p.m. local time on the evening of June 15. The body was recovered and given to the family for burial.”

It comes after a young British backpacker said she was “very, very lucky to be alive” after being attacked by a crocodile on the Zambezi River in Zambia last year.

She was rescued by brave friends who dived into the water behind her and slapped the crocodile on the nose until it released them.

It was previously estimated that 1,000 people are killed by crocodiles every year.

The animals don’t necessarily prey on humans, but they are opportunistic killers.
