Estevao Alberto Gino has died after a vicious crocodile attack while jogging along a river. The young player was confirmed dead by his club, amateur side Atletico Mineiro de Tete.
According to Edy Carvalho, the club’s founder, and coach, Gino, 19, was jogging along the Zambezi river when he stopped to cool down – before being attacked by the crocodile.
Carvalho told local media: “The crocodile came out of the water abruptly and took him by the waist. After that, the animal ran back into the water.”
He also revealed that tragically, the teenage player’s body was not found – presumably eaten by the hungry reptile. Gino was reportedly running with two friends, who said they could do do nothing to help.
