A 65-year-old woman from Bangkok committed suicide by jumping into a pond full of crocodilesat a reptile farm.
Even though the farm's staff tried to rescue Wanpen Inyai when they saw her jumping into the pond, she died, according to the BBC.
The Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo, located near the capital of Thailand is said to have more than one lakh crocodiles, according to their website.
The family of Inyai reported the police about her missing, but the cops didn't start investigation as they were waiting for 24 hours to complete.
Witnesses saw her taking off her shoes and jumping into the pit. The woman's name was recognised after a healthcare card was found in the pond the next day, according to Bangkok Post. The family identified her body, but didn't file any complaint as they believed that she committed suicide.
Sunan Tharmna, Inyai's sister, said that the latter was seen in a depressed mood for several days and didn't even speak to anybody, according to Daily Mail.
The police confirmed the incident on Tuesday and sent some tissues found in the pond for DNA test.
Reportedly, this is not the first time such an incident has taken place in the farm. Once in 2012, similar story hit headlines, when a woman went missing. Her husband had lodged a complaint and mentioned that his wife went to visit the farm alone. Whether she jumped into the pond or not, still remains as a mystery.
BBC reports that the farm owner Uthen Youngprapakorn assured to install proper security measures and fencing to avoid such accidents further. He also added that Inyai might have intended to commit suicide as she went alone to the farm.
