Authorities recently responded to reports from shocked pedestrians about a huge crocodile who was swimming in a lagoon with a dead man's body in its jaws.
Residents took video of the crocodile and notified authorities after they saw the body of the 25-year-old man who was captured by the reptile after he entered the lagoon, Riviera Maya News reported
The extremely graphic footage was also posted on Twitter by reporter Porfirio Ibarra on Thursday, and was filmed at the Laguna del Carpintero bridge in Tamaulipas, Mexico.
The man, who hasn't been identified, ignored signs at the park that warned people against swimming in the water, according to police, The Daily Mail reported
Fire commander Juan Garcia Hernández said that the crocodile was 11 feet long, according to Riviera Maya News
Police found the crocodile and the man's body an hour after their search began
Newsweek reached out to the public security office of Tamaulipas state for additional information and comment.
