Woman's head found on the shores of Lake Victoria after crocodile attack

She had gone to fetch water from the lake when the reptile dragged her into the water.

According to a report by Daily Nation, the victim who lived near the shores of Lake Victoria had gone to fetch water from the lake for bathing when the reptile dragged her into the water.

Bath

“My daughter who had accompanied her to the lake to fetch water for bathing said something dragged her into the water. She screamed twice but the animal had gone with her by the time we arrived,” said Mr Evans Odhiambo, the woman’s husband.

The woman’s head was found about 500 meters from where the crocodile attacked her while the internal organs were found stuck in water hyacinth about 50 meters from the scene of the attack.

Low visibility

On the night the incident, Mr Odhiambo and his son managed to recover the bucket she was carrying and one of the sandals she was wearing.

They had to abandon the search for her until the following day due to low visibility and heavy rains that were pounding the area.
