Oh my GOSH!!! How totally horrific for her mother! I am a mother and I can say with all honesty that I think I would just dive in and surrender myself to the croc if I went through something like that!! That poor little soul. How terrifying her last moments were. Life is just so unfair isnt it!

        Yes, I know. But it's kind of creepy that it was on the anniversary of the Crocodile Man's death. This could mean something!!!!
