By BBN Staff: The body of eight-year-old Adriana Moody, the little girl dragged underwater by a crocodile on Sunday while swimming, was recovered this morning in the Maypen area, according to police sources.
The crocodile was also reportedly shot and killed. Moody’s body has since been transported to the morgue at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hopsital (KHMH).
Moody was swimming in the Maypen river in the company of an adult and three other children when a crocodile appeared and grabbed her. The crocodile took her under and the adult got in a canoe, paddling down river to try to save her but the crocodile took her under again. After that, there were no signs of the crocodile or the child until this morning when her body was found.
