Australian man become second victim of cannibal crocodile

Autopsy results have confirmed that a 55-year-old Australian man has become the second diver to be killed by a saltwater crocodile off the country's northern coast in five days, police said Friday. Russell Augus Butel was mauled by a large saltwater crocodile as he dived with a friend off Cobourg Peninsula, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) northeast of Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory, the territory's police said in a statement.

Butel's diving companion, a 41-year-old New Zealand man, scrambled out of the water and called police upon seeing a large crocodile after his friend went missing.

The incident came just five days after British snorkeler Russell Harris, 37, was killed by a four-meter (13-foot) crocodile Saturday off Groote Eylandt, a coastal Northern Territory island more than 500 kilometers (310 miles) to the southwest, reports the AP. I.L.
