(DAILY MAIL) — A father helplessly watched on as his 10-year-old daughter was snatched and killed by a crocodile in Indonesia.

The pair and the youngster’s brother had been hunting for turtles in the East Nusatenggara province when the girl, Juraida, was dragged in to the water by a giant saltwater crocodile.

Speaking to the Jakarta Post Indonesian official Viktor Mado Waton said ‘Juraida was seized when she was in about half a metre of water at the river’s mouth.’
