Melaka exco on viral video: There are crocs in Sg Malim, but no reports of incidents with people

MELAKA: There are at least two crocodiles lurking in the waters of Sungai Malim here but there have been no reports of any incidents involving people, says a state exco member.

State agriculture, agro-based, entrepreneur development and cooperative committee chairman Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee said one of the reptiles was reported to be about four metres long while the other is a juvenile.

Norhizam was commenting on a viral video and messages about a crocodile with a woman's body in its mouth, supposedly taken along Sungai Malim.

"These crocodiles have been sighted frequently by locals," Norhizam said.

"I have not received any information from the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) about such an incident (of the crocodile carrying off a body)," he said on Sunday (July 24).

Melaka Tengah OCPD Asst Comm Afzanizar Ahmad also said there was no report about any such incident.

In the 28-second video, the crocodile apparently carries off the body of a woman who is said to have drowned.

Another message claimed that the footage was shot from a bridge across Sungai Malim.
