Mumbai: Baby crocodile found in BMC's swimming pool in Dadar

On Tuesday morning, a baby crocodile was found swimming in Dadar's Mahatma Gandhi swimming pool. A vigilant lifeguard spotted the crocodile and promptly captured the crocodile and kept it inside a drum.

Later, the lifeguard alerted the forest department, Mumbai Fire Brigade, and police about the incident.

According to the sources, the unusual occurrence took place during the early hours of Tuesday. The baby crocodile was noticed swimming in the pool. The lifeguard immediately informed the pool authorities and the baby crocodile was safely captured using a cleaning net.

The pool authorities secured the crocodile in a drum and notified the forest department for its safe relocation to a forested area in Mumbai.

Expressing concern, a source from the Mahatma Gandhi swimming pool, said, 'We have lodged complaints several times to ensure the protection of this pool, given its proximity to the beach area. Previously, a snake was also found inside the pool. Each passing day increases the risk for people going swimming."
