Kendrapara: With the presence of mind and timely act, two bold women helped a youth to escape narrowly from being swallowed by a crocodile at Nipania village under Mahakalapada Tehsil of the district this morning.
According to reports, one Kinaram Mandal of the village had gone to a nearby river to attend nature’s call this morning. However, a crocodile, which Mandal had not seen, suddenly attacked him and tried to drag him into the water by catching him on his right hand.
