An elderly was recently attacked by a live crocodile he initially thought was just an animal figure at Amaya View, a popular tourist spot in Cagayan de Oro City.
As shown in this video below by fritce TV, the elderly entered the enclosed pool where the crocodile was located and placed his hand on the reptile which then abruptly tried to bite his arm off.
The daughter posted in social media about the incident accusing Amaya View of not attending to her father.
But this was contradicted by some Amaya staff.
As shown in the photos below (courtesy of Kier Nambatac), the area is fully enclosed and it seemed the two individuals climbed over the fence through the concrete slope. The victim was then rushed to the hospital.
