Police said that Cole ignored signs to stay out of the water at the camping ground at Mary River located in the east of Darwin.

Cole had gone for swimming with another friend, but was snatched by a huge crocodile while swimming back while the onlookers watched getting him "eaten" helplessly.

Since 2009, this is reported to be the sixth such case by the Saltwater crocodiles. They are said to be the deadliest species on the earth, who pull their victims to the bottom of a river and roll them around until they drown before eating part of them.

'Salties', as they are often known as, store the remaining part of the body for later consumption.
