CANCUN, Mexico – Authorities found a man’s body being eaten by crocodiles at a Mexican golf course Friday, according to Noticaribe.

The body was found floating in a lagoon near the 18th hole at the private Iberostar Golf Club Cancun, part of an upscale resort in the tourist zone of the city.

Hotel staff members called police around 6 p.m. to report the grisly scene, according to Novedades Quintana Roo. Police and local officials are still investigating; the cause of death is not yet known.

The man hasn’t been identified as of Friday evening, according to Noticaribe. He was found wearing only tennis shoes and blue pants.

The small body of water where the body was found connects to the much larger Nichupté Lagoon.

This is a developing story.
