Woman was attacked by an animal in Tamarindo
By A.M. Costa Rica staff

The Red Cross reported that there was an animal attack on a woman on Tamarindo beach.

According to the brief statement from the rescuers, they answered an emergency call for an animal attack on a woman, but when they arrived at the scene, the woman had been taken to the Liberia Hospital in a private ambulance. They were unable to get the name of the woman or more details of the attack.

According to an eyewitness account, the woman was attacked by a crocodile while surfing at the beach. The animal, said the witness, appeared to have bitten her on her left thigh and possibly the lower left abdomen. She was carried from the water on a surfboard. The attack occurred near a river outlet at the beach.

The Tamarindo area has been the subject of attention by the Red Cross precisely because of the reports of sightings or crocodile attacks in the past.

One of the most serious cases was in July 2016, when a U.S. citizen named Arthur Jonathan Cker, 59, lost half his leg due to an attack by a crocodile at the Tamarindo beach.

According to the report of the Red Cross, "Cker was surfing along with a group of friends very close to the beach, when he was suddenly attacked by a crocodile." He was able to hold on to his surfboard and was helped to the beach by friends and lifeguards.

He was attended by the Red Cross of Tamarindo and sent to the Hospital Enrique Baltodado in Liberia. Unfortunately, the injury to his right leg was very serious and his lower leg was amputated at the knee.

According to the National System of Conservation Areas in Tamarindo, there is a wetland protected by the Ramsar Convention which is part of the Ballena Marine National Park. It is inhabited by various species of animals, including crocodiles.

The species that lives in Costa Rica is known as American crocodile, yellow lizard or simply crocodile and is distributed throughout the country. It inhabits both rivers and swamps, lakes, lagoons, estuaries, mangroves and, in the sea, is found very close to the beach.
