Police in Cambodia has released the photo of the two-year-old girl identify as Rom Roath Neary eaten by crocodiles on her family’s farm in Siem Reap province’s Siem Reap city, Cambodia on Sunday.
Police Lieutenant Och Sophen said the family recently built a fence around the concrete pool but small children were still small enough to fit through the gaps.
The little girl wandered off never to be seen alive again while her mum was busy looking after her newborn baby.
According to report, Dad Min Min, 35, initially searched the house before finding his daughter’s skull stripped of flesh on the ground of a concrete crocodile enclosure in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Lieutenant Och Sophen, chief of Siem Reap commune police, said that on the day of the incident, the girl was home with her mother.
When the father came home at 10am, he couldn’t find his daughter in the house,” Lt Sophen said. “He found a skull in the crocodile enclosure. He confirmed that the daughter fell into the crocodile enclosure and that the crocodiles killed her, leaving only her skull.”
His farm is located behind the house, and the small girl came to play around and fell in while her mother was busy taking care of another daughter, who had just been born,” Lt Sophen said.
Officers urged other families who run crocodile farms to take extra care to prevent children from getting anywhere near the animals.
