British tourist killed by a crocodile in Sri Lanka

A British holidaymaker, who is presumed dead after being snatched by a crocodile in Sri Lanka, was a Financial Times journalist.

Paul McClean, who worked as a reporter on the newspaper’s fastFT desk in London, is missing after the huge reptile grabbed him and dragged him underwater at a lagoon called Crocodile Rock.

The 25-year-old was last seen “waving his hands in the air” after being seized by the crocodile as he washed his hands in the jungle.

It was said that he had gone to the area for a surfing lesson and had wandered away from friends to go to the toilet.

Sri Lankan police and the army were searching the shore and surrounding the area for the Oxford-educated journalist’s body.

The area is known for its large population of crocodiles and is just yards away from the popular Elephant Rock surf point on Sri Lanka’s east coast. The attack left fellow holidaymakers stunned.
