The fisherman was on the opposite side of the river and downstream of the incident location.”

Fawas Lafeer added to say, “This is the first known crocodile attack in Sri Lanka. Both tourists and locals surf at Elephant Rock, which is a beautiful secluded beach and very safe. Crocodiles in Sri Lanka live only in the fresh, back waters of the jungle.  It is almost unheard of for them to come close to the beach. The salt water actually turns them blind.”
