A little boy who was swimming in a river is swallowed by a hippopotamus (video).
An unnamed little child was claimed to have been devoured by a hippopotamus that was swimming in the river in where he and his friends were swimming.
During the video, which has quickly gained popularity, the three friends are swimming in the pool when suddenly a hippotamus emerges out of the water, prompting two of them to flee out of the water while the third guy is nowhere to be seen.
According to accounts, the little child may have been murdered and consumed by the creature, which is also claimed to be capable of consuming human beings. It has taken many people by surprise to discover how the animal was able to make its way into the river after they came across the footage.
