Two boys were attacked and killed by an Orinoco crocodile (Crocodylus intermedius) in the San Fernando River; one of the boys had apparently "dived" nearly right into the crocodile's mouth. A 14 year old boy named Rammon Elroy jumped in after the first boy and managed to help him to shore with the assistance of another boy, at this time this other boy who had been helping was then also attacked by the crocodile. Rammon proceeded to dive in after this boy as well and bring him to shore. Both boys apparently succumbed to their injuries, while Rammon was unharmed.
