(London Daily Mail) A 26-year-old man who ignored warnings to stay out of a river in northern Australia is feared to have been killed by a huge crocodile.

A shocked friend told staff at a caravan and camping park east of Darwin that the man and a friend jumped into the crocodile-infested Mary River for a swim on Saturday (local time), ignoring all warnings.

The friend then watched helplessly as a huge crocodile grabbed hold of the man and pulled him under.
