COZUMEL, Q. Roo — A beach hotel worker lost two fingers of one hand and sustained serious injuries to various parts of the body, including the head and neck, after suffering a crocodile attack in the swimming pool of a beach club.
The club is located at kilometer 14.5 of the southern area of the island of Cozumel.
The events happened around 9 p.m. Sunday July 9 when the man went swimming in the pool. No one had noticed the presence of the reptile, and when he felt threatened and his space was invaded, the crocodile attacked the man as he swam. By his own means he managed to break free, but not without sustaining grave injuries.
The worker was transferred to a private hospital where his state of health is reported severe but stable.
Civil Protection personnel announced that the specimen had a length of 1.30 meters and after being captured was delivered to the Ecology Department of the City of Cozumel, but it is unknown if it was already released.
“If it had been two meters it does not count,” said a source, who recalled that in that same beach club on December 22, 2016, firefighters came to capture a saurian that was in the same pool.
