Australian MP blames “human stupidity” for suspected fatal croc attack


(CNN)A 46-year-old lady is feared dead after being assaulted by a crocodile while swimming with a good friend on a beach in far North Queensland in Australia.

The ladies, who were not from the location, were apparently swimming in waist deep water on remote Thornton Beach, in the Daintree National Park in Cairns at about 10.30 p.m. Sunday night (8:30 a.m. ET) when the female was taken by the crocodile.

    The last deadly crocodile attack in the very same Daintree location remained in 2009, when a five-year-old kid was taken by a crocodile while he was having fun with his bro and his canine on the banks of the Daintree River.
