Crocodiles are ferocious if you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even though their diet mainly consist of small fishes, reptiles, invertebrates, and mammals, they can be quite dangerous for humans, especially during the breeding season.
In Indonesia, which is known to have numerous lakes and rivers infested with crocodiles, a shaman who claimed he has the power to control these creatures was dragged beneath the waters by these scaly creatures.
Onlookers were shocked at the sight and one witness was able to capture a video of the attack.
Apparently, the shaman was invited to search for the body of a man who was killed the previous day in Kutai Kartanegara, East Kalimantan.
Known as Suprianto, a pawang buaya (crocodile shaman), heard that a man was fatally attacked by the reptiles.
He wanted to help look for the man's body and dived into the water.
Concerned citizens watched as Suprianto went into the water saying he could keep the crocodiles at bay while he was chanting.
After a few moments, he can be seen being dragged beneath the water.
After the initial shock, concern slowly ensued when he failed to resurface.
Watch the chilling video here:
Police officers found the bodies of both men. Surprisingly, Suprianto’s body was still intact.
Police Chief Fadillah Zulkarnaen told Asia One:
“The shaman was found floating in Muara Jawa at 9.40pm. His body is still whole.”
“I think he was dragged by a crocodile under the water and then he ran out of oxygen. From the pictures I’ve seen, his body is still intact, his arms and legs are still there.”
Indonesian shamans or witch doctors are popular because many people believe they have the power to control crocodiles. In a video that previously went viral, a shaman summoned the crocodiles to return the body of a man they killed. True enough, three crocodiles emerged with the man’s body. This incident happened in the same area.
This reminds us of other individuals who claimed they could defy and ward off death with supernatural powers. A priest in South Africa once let his followers drink water tainted with rat poison to prove that they’re immortal.
In a similar scenario in Thailand, a psychic accidentally stabbed himself when he tried to persuade his viewers that he could break the sword. Unfortunately, the weapon did not break and went through his chest.

Cat Risks Life To Save 97-Year-Old Owner From Four Vicious Pit Bulls’ Attack
A cat risked her life by jumping in front of vicious pit bulls who were attacking her 97-year-old owner.
Dogs are men’s best friends but when you are not their owner, you might have a far different experience from cuddling with them. While Shih Tzus, Brittany Spaniels, and Golden Retrievers roaming around the neighborhood can be a cute sight, it's an entirely different story when it’s Pit Bulls, Rottweilers or German Shepherds that you see running loose on the streets. Your first reaction might be to run and hide for your life.
Over the years, there have been studies on dog bite injuries where 51% of the serious attacks were caused by pit bulls. Another 15-year study confirmed these findings, claiming pit bulls are one of the major causes of fatal dog attacks in the state of Kentucky. Although dog experts claim that pit bulls aren’t really the aggressive and dangerous type, people still feel fear them very much.
Sophie Thomas was pulling dandelions out of her garden when four pit bulls entered her property and started to attack her.
