What a woman thought to be a crocodile floating in a river near a recreation park in Kedah turned out to be a human corpse, reported Harian Metro.

Nor Intan Suraini Mohd Yatim, 36, said the body was spotted by several people exerci­sing in the park near Sungai Kolam Lembaga Kemajuan Pertanian Muda.

"I thought it might have been a crocodile when I saw people pointing at the river," she said.

Nor Intan, her husband and son were on the way to her in-law's house when she noticed a group of people on the riverbank.
