Deadly croc pool dip
By AP

BANGKOK -- A woman was killed after jumping into a pool of crocodiles in front of scores of horrified tourists yesterday at a wildlife park near Bangkok.

The woman, identified in media reports as Somjai Setabul, was seized by one crocodile and then swarmed by more than 100 others, witnesses said. Park workers were only able to retrieve her body about 20 minutes after she jumped in.

Park guide Thanes Wiriyaporn told The Associated Press the incident took place around feeding time, when the tourists were purchasing buckets of chicken parts to toss to the crocodiles.

He saw a woman in her 30s standing alone by the pool put down her purse and a bottle of water and suddenly jump in.

"The moment the crocodile grabbed her body, she even hugged onto him. It was horrifying," Wiriyaporn said.

Media reports said the woman left behind two letters in her purse that could be interpreted as suicide notes.

Hmm I know this is going to sound cruel and heartless but what an orignal way to commit suicide!!!

On the other side, now that most of those crocs have tasted humans they'll probably end up being killed.. *sigh*

I feel sorry for the people that saw that, especially the children.. talk about nightmares!

Thanks, Lance

You would think that WWF would do something to correct this.
Maybe heavy a fine?

why should the Crocodiles be killed they did nothing wrong. The woman made her own chice it was a stupid choice . I agree with Rene b what an original way to commit suicide . I feel more sorry for the Crocodiles than i do that woman b/c now their future is in jeopardy.
