The day after a crocodile attack killed a local villager, a shaman named Suprianto went to the same site and after chanting a few spells, he dove into the infested waters and started swimming around. That lasted for almost fifteen seconds before he was seen being pulled under water by one of the beasts. So, if you happen to know any shamans, I know where there is a job open.
This is the moment a man claiming to have supernatural control over crocodiles died after one of the reptiles appeared to drag the shaman under water.
The man, named Suprianto, died after the suspected crocodile attack in Kutai Kartanegara, Indonesia, despite his supposed powers.
In the shocking video, he is seen swimming into the waters to look for the body of a teenager, called Arjuna, who was attacked the previous day.
But Suprianto was dragged under mid-mantra as he was swimming and chanting while on a mission to find the boy.
Police recovered both bodies on Sunday, with Kutai Kartanegara Police Chief Fadillah Zulkarnaen telling Detik news site that Suprianto was found floating at 9.40pm.
‘I think he was dragged by a croc under the water and then ran out of oxygen.
‘From the pictures I’ve seen, his body is still intact, his arms and legs are still there.’
Arjuna’s corpse was also intact.
The gruesome incidents follow an attack in Kalimantan this summer, and the second one involving a shaman.
A crocodile killed a man in July after reportedly answering the shaman’s call, even though he hadn’t gone into the water.
And a giant python swallowed a man while in West Sulawesi, Indonesia, just four months before.
