A Indonesian man who claimed he had “supernatural control” over crocodiles and reptiles has been dragged under the water and killed by one of the reptiles despite his innate ‘powers’.
The man, only known as Suprianto, was trying to use his ‘powers’ to find the body of a young man named Arjuna, who was attacked the day before.
The distressing video below shows people watching Suprianto perform a ritual underwater and making his way further out into the water as he was convinced he was immune from the crocodiles.
Just a few moments later, people were dismayed to see him being brutally attacked and being dragged beneath the water while swimming.
The incident took place in the Eastern part of Indonesian Islands, Kalimantan.
Police recovered both bodies with Kutai Kartanegara police chief Fadillah Zulkarnaen saying Suprianto was found floating at 9.40pm.
The police chief stated:
“I think he was dragged by a croc under the water and then ran out of oxygen. From the pictures I’ve seen, his body is still intact, his arms and legs are still there.”
Arjuna’s corpse was also intact.
Here’s the video of the incident:
