Suicide By Crocodile? Woman Jumps Into Pit
POSTED: 2:24 p.m. EDT August 12, 2002
BANGKOK, Thailand -- A woman died today at a wildlife park in Thailand when she jumped into a pool of crocodiles at feeding time.
Horrified witnesses say the woman was seized by one crocodile and swarmed by more than 100 others. It took workers 20 minutes to retrieve her body.
A guide at the park in Bangkok says the woman jumped into the pond "without a cry" as tourists bought buckets of chicken parts to toss to the reptiles.
Media reports say she left behind two letters in her purse that could be interpreted as suicide notes.
Officials say there have been suicide attempts at the park in the past, but they were always able to talk the people out of taking their own lives.
