    Ms Wanpen had jumped off a walkway at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo

    A 65-year-old woman from Bangkok has killed herself by jumping into a pit of crocodiles at a reptile farm near the capital, police say.

    Witnesses saw Wanpen Inyai jumping into a pond at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo on Friday, reported The Bangkok Post. Staff failed to rescue her.

    Police said they were told by family members that Ms Wanpen appeared depressed prior to her death.

    Thai tourist attractions are said to often have lax safety rules.

    Thai police confirmed Ms Wanpen's death on Tuesday afternoon.

    According to reports, she took off her shoes before jumping into the middle of a pond said to be up to 3m deep that contained hundreds of adult crocodiles.

    Staff tried to use long sticks to stop the crocodiles from attacking her, according to the Bangkok Post.

    Too right! She must've been a bit fuckin' mental as well as depressed. Or she really loved crocs and wanted to make sure that they got a good fresh meal. Or both!
