A schoolboy has been eaten alive by a crocodile while playing with a balloon with his dad. Manuel Abraham, 7, was playing by the Barra Santa Ana estuary in the city of Lazaro Cardenas in the west Mexican state of Michoacan when the balloon blew down to the river bank. As the boy ran over to get it back, his horrified dad watched as the croc leapt out of the water and snapped its jaws around his son’s head before dragging him back under. Passers by rushed to the water’s edge to try and save the boy but he had already disappeared. The distraught father told local media: "We had come to visit relatives when we decided to go for a walk and play with the balloon. "When it blew down to the shore I wasn't worried as no one had told me there were crocodiles around." City officials immediately ordered the body be found and deployed soldiers, civil protection groups and members of the Fisheries Cooperatives to search the water. But by nightfall they had failed to find even a trace. Heberto Camacho, head of the city’s Civil Protection unit said that they had now received instructions from the Environment Ministry to capture all the crocodiles they could find and wash their insides out to see if they can find the remains of the boy. He added that there were around 500 crocodiles in the Barra Santa Ana area. There have been eight crocodile attacks in the last two years in the area. (ends)
