An unemployed man in the Philippines was killed after falling into a crocodile breeding pen in a resort and attacked by the reptiles, said police.

The remains of Sorbelo Sonajo, 57, were recovered Friday morning from a man-made lagoon inside the inland resort in a town of Santo Tomas, in Mindanao's Davao del Norte province, Xinhua quoted a police official Zosimo Jose as saying.

"Parts of (the victim's) head was ripped away and the arms and right leg were missing, possibly eaten by the crocodiles," the police official said.

A probe is being conducted to ascertain how and why the victim was able to gain entry into the crocodile pen.
