When the young woman realized what had happened, she confided in the neighbors, and they immediately started looking for the boy in the evening, they also called the police and the fire department. “At first we thought that the boy might have fallen into the thicket of trees that cover the stream. When we couldn’t find it, it dawned on us that she must have thrown it straight into the water,” said one villager for the New Indian Express.

According to Outlook India website the woman also spoke to reporters and told them that her husband was psychologically abusing her. She blamed him for the boy’s death. “My husband is irresponsible. He kept saying to let the boy die. He claimed that the boy was just eating and doing nothing. I wanted him to leave the little one alone. The husband kept repeating these things – how much suffering did my son have to endure? But he still had his way, saying let the child die,” the mother claimed to reporters.

For scientists, it was remarkable to discover that they prey on reptiles excellently they recognize a child’s cry. In Australia, a crocodile clamped down on a man’s jaws, and the latter deflected his attack by biting a sensitive area.
