Australian authorities searching for a seven-year-old girl have found what appears to be human remains inside a 3m crocodile.

An extensive search began at first light for the girl who was last seen swimming at the natural pool at an outstation about 210 miles (340km) east of the city of Darwin on Friday afternoon.

The girl was swimming with other children and an adult at the time.

Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to 7m (23ft) long and weigh more than a ton, are a common feature of Australia's tropical north.

Why in the hell would you bring your kids to swim in crock infested waters? If they were in this country they would have voted obama.

A dirtbag here in FL is on death row. He kidnapped a little girl and then kicked her out of his car in a swampy area of Palm Beach County. When LEO found her body, the ME determined that she was still alive as the gator was eating her.
