HONIARA, Solomon Islands (April 26, 2002 - Solomon Star/PINA Nius Online)---A Guadalcanal man was killed by a crocodile while fishing with two companions in the Hoilava River.

The man's fishing companions were unable to do anything when their friend disappeared into the river waters, gripped by the crocodile.

Parts of the man's body were recovered the next day by searchers and taken to his village for burial. He left behind his wife and five children.

People are being warned to take care in river areas because of the increasing number of crocodiles.
