River Guide Believed Killed By Croc

A South African whitewater guide was apparently pulled from his kayak by a crocodile in the Democratic Republic of Congo and is presumed dead.

From CNN:

Hendrik Coetzee and two American kayakers, Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic, were on the Lukuga River when the incident occurred Tuesday, the clothing and outdoor gear company said on its “Born Out There” blog.

Stookesberry and Korbulic were able to paddle to safety and were assisted by the International Rescue Committee, the website said.

“The mission for the Africa kayak expedition was to run and document the unexplored whitewater of the region, while focusing on the people and clean water crisis in Central Africa,” Eddie Bauer said.
