An elderly woman in Thailand was torn apart by dozens of crocodiles after she jumped into a reptile pond at a zoo, a report said on Tuesday.
Wanpen Inyai, 65, threw herself into a pond with more than 1,000 crocodiles at a zoo in Thailand.
A picture posted online shows a crocodile approaching her moments before she was attacked, according to Daily Mail.
The zoo keepers desperately tried to ward off the reptiles which were feasting on her body.
Her sister Sunan Tharmna said Wanpen was depressed and had not spoken to anyone for several days before her death on Friday.
CCTV footage reportedly shows her leaving her shoes on a walkway before jumping into the pit at the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm & Zoo.
Officers said they were able to identify after finding her healthcare card floating on the surface of the water.
This was later confirmed by DNA tests.
