River Swimming Ends In Tragedy As Vicious Crocodile Attacks
A seemingly carefree day out with friends ended in tragedy for 14-year-old Redcliff boy, Ali Phiri, who was killed by a crocodile whilst swimming in Kwekwe River.
Phiri’s life came to an untimely end as he was already dead when community members snatched him from the vicious crocodile’s jaws.
Phiri’s friends managed to survive the attack , only succumbing to minor injuries.
Family spokesperson, Munyaradzi Munikwa who is also newly elected ward 2 councilor confirmed Ali’s tragic death.
“He was swimming in Kwekwe River together with his three friends. We then saw the other two boys coming in a huff informing us about the reptiles having attacked Ali,” narrated Munikwa.
“We had no option but to jump into the water to rescue the hapless boy from the crocodiles which were by now drawing the body into the water.”
Burial arrangements are underway.
