It was intact, with wounds on his right leg below and above the knee, Dissanayake told The Post.

The ever blue waters that surround the beaches are teaming with tropical fish and delightfully warm for a dip.Lafeer, who was about 10 feet away at the time, suddenly heard a fisherman screaming.He ran to the muddy lagoon, where a fisherman told him a crocodile had dragged a tourist - Mc Clean - underwater.After all the serenity, there are possibilities to be more adventurous with white water rafting down ferocious rivers for the thrill seekers or travel to much calmer waters to take a dive with an array of vibrant fish.If you here a crash or bang in the night do not be alarmed it could just be a herd of elephants crowding a waterhole!
