A 2-year-old girl was eaten alive after falling into a pit of crocodiles on her family farm, say police in Cambodia.
Rom Roath Neary’s mother is said to have lost sight of her while she was busy caring for her newborn baby.
The girl’s father Min Min, 35, returned home at 10 a.m. and began looking for the missing toddler.
Local media showed harrowing pictures of mom of three Nay Is, 32, breaking down in tears as she clutched the toddler’s remains to her chest.
Police Chief Capt. Chem Chamnan said: “Her father found only her skull in the crocodile enclosure, where she was killed by crocodiles.”
Police said the family had recently built a fence around the 10-foot-high concrete pool, but children were still small enough to fit through the gaps.
Lt. Och Sophen, chief of Siem Reap commune police, said the mother “lost sight of” 2-year-old Rom.
He added: “When the father came back home, he couldn’t find his daughter in the house. He found a skull in the crocodile enclosure.
“He confirmed that the daughter fell into the crocodile enclosure and that the crocodiles killed her, leaving only her skull.”
