DAILY FILE – Deasy Tuwo, 44, was killed when the large reptile reportedly jumped a concrete wall and attacked its handler during feeding time in North Sulawesi, Indonesia
A scientist was eaten alive by a 17ft long crocodile after being dragged into its enclosure while she fed it.
Deasy Tuwo, 44, was giving the crocodile, named Merry, lumps of meat last Friday morning in North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
But the beast stood on its hind legs and leaped an 8ft high concrete wall to pull the researcher into the shallow water.
Horrified staff at the facility – named the CV Yosiki Laboratory – made the grim discovery at around 8.45am when they noticed a “strange shape” in the water.
They then saw the crocodile laying on the ground with Deasy’s savaged body in its jaws.
The reptile had ripped off Deasy’s left arm and mutilated her upper torso.
Rescue workers battled to retrieve Deasy’s body from the croc, which thrashed violently every time they tried to approach it.
Merry was pictured strapped to a flat-bed truck to be taken for medical tests to confirm that he had eaten the body parts.
