A huge crocodile knocked over a canoe in a southern Philippine lake and decapitated a 10-year-old girl, police said. The girl and a classmate were on their way to their floating school on Mihaba Lake in Agusan del Sur province when the crocodile bumped the boat, causing it to capsize, Bunawan town police officer Melchor Danuco said Wednesday. The attack happened on Saturday but it wasn't until Monday that rescuers found the girl's headless body floating on the lake. The classmate was rescued by a man escorting the pair in another boat, said Ruel Hipulan, head of the private group that runs the school in the remote town.
