A child was attacked by what was likely a Siamese crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis) while bathing within a stream at Song Pluei in amphur Lumbuk or changvad Ubon. The child and been herding buffalo alongside a man and another boy and they had all decided to bathe when the attack occurred. The man managed to fight the crocodile and rescue the boy, but he died a day later due to the severity of his injuries. The man, named Less Sumaba, who rescued the child was awarded the Siamese Rajaniyom Medal for his bravery. The location of the attack is unknown due to the locations mentioned either no longer existing or existing under different names in modern times; changvad Ubon refers to Ubon Ratchathani province but the other two more detailed locations are not known. Given it's location, the culprit of the attack is almost certainly the Siamese crocodile.
