A crocodile was just filmed returning a man’s dead body to land after being supposedly “summoned” by an alligator witch, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The deceased man, Syarifuddin, was reportedly bathing in the Berau river this past Tuesday with friends when the alligator dragged him underwater.
“He was just in the water and the crocodile humped at him and took him,” said friend Andi Resmin, who was with the victim at the time.
According to local resident Eet: if a person “bathes naked, they will be definitely be eaten by crocodiles, for sure. If they wear clothes they will not be ambushed.”
Relatives desperately tried to rescue them, but even police were unable to find the body. Villagers then called a witch doctor, who allegedly specializes in “crocodile witchcraft.”
He apparently cast a spell on the creature, pleading for it to bring back the man, alive.
The incredible video shows the alligator swimming up to the surface clutching a deceased Syarifuddin by the leg and pushing him to shore.
Two other alligators emerged with it.
It was “very weird,” said Police chief Inspector Talisayan Faisal Hamid.
Villagers seem to think the crocodile was guarding the victim’s body underwater, since his body was technically unharmed.
Regardless, locals are not “hunting the crocodile that attacked” the man.
