A paramedic is missing after being attacked by a giant crocodile in front of her 12-year-old daughter in Botswana.
Beeld reported on Wednesday that Danelle Viljoen, 38, was on holiday with her daughter and friends at Shakawe in the Okavango Delta on Monday.
She was apparently watching her daughter and a friend’s son while they were fishing, and sat in the shallow water to cool down. Almost immediately, a crocodile pounded on her and dragged her into the water.
The crocodile was estimated to be 5-metres-long and a metre wide.
Botswana police searched along the river but there was no sign of Viljoen.
Viljoen’s daughter is being cared for by her grandparents, who are doing missionary work near Maun in Botswana.
