Horrific moment shaman who said his supernatural powers would protect him in crocodile-infested lake... is suddenly dragged beneath the waters as shocked onlookers gasp
The man, named Suprianto, died after the suspected crocodile attack in Kutai Kartanegara, Indonesia, despite his supposed powers.
In the shocking video, he is seen swimming into the waters to look for the body of a teenager, called Arjuna, who was attacked the previous day.
But Suprianto was dragged under mid-mantra as he was swimming and chanting while on a mission to find the boy.
Police recovered both bodies on Sunday, with Kutai Kartanegara Police Chief Fadillah Zulkarnaen telling Detik news site that Suprianto was found floating at 9.40pm.
'I think he was dragged by a croc under the water and then ran out of oxygen.
'From the pictures I’ve seen, his body is still intact, his arms and legs are still there.'
Arjuna’s corpse was also intact.
The gruesome incidents follow an attack in Kalimantan this summer, and the second one involving a shaman.
A crocodile killed a man in July after reportedly answering the shaman's call, even though he hadn't gone into the water.
And a giant python swallowed a man while in West Sulawesi, Indonesia, just four months before.
