 A 26-year-old man from Mt Darwin was attacked and killed by a crocodile while crossing a flooded Ruya River on Friday.

Mashonaland Central acting provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Naison Dhliwayo confirmed the unfortunate incident and said members of the ZRP sub-aqua unit were searching for the remains of Doro.

We are looking for the body of Doro who was attacked by a crocodile while trying to cross the flooded Ruya River, Dhliwayo said.

Assistant Inspector Dhliwayo said Jethiasi Chari (29) was in the company of Doro when he was swept away by the flooded river.

Mr. Chari told the police that, as Doro was being swept away, he saw a big crocodile attacking him.

After witnessing the horrific incident, Chari then informed a neighbor, Martin Gwetsuro (59) who then alerted the police.

Assistant Inspector Dhliwayo issued a warning to members of the public to be cautious when approaching flooded rivers.

We are warning people during this rain season that floods are inevitable. So people should treat every river as a susceptible home for crocodiles, he said.
