Boy Finds Human Skeleton In The Surf

This is the chilling moment a human skeleton is dragged out of shallow waters onto a beach in Mexico after it was discovered by a child.

DNA testing is currently being carried out on human remains washed ashore and then spotted by a small boy at the Ponta Negra Beach, Natal, Brazil on 9th October, according to local media.

The victim was found wearing a pair of men’s shorts and is believed to have been a young man, according to Military Police (Cicom) Sergeant Itamar.

He explained: “Possibly the body is that of a young man who was on a boat, a speedboat.

“And he got off the boat and came swimming to the beach to get something.

“And when he returned to that vessel, he couldn’t and drowned.”

Grim CCTV footage shows the head, torso, hips and one leg being dragged out of the water and put on a tarpaulin on the sand.

Officials say the case will be investigated by the Specialised Police Station for Homicide and Kidnapping (DEHS) in the region, according to reports.

The skeleton was reportedly found by a small child while he was swimming.

This was moments before the boy’s father, Glazier Moises Soares de Brito, 28, fished his surprised son out of the water before going back for the remains.

He told local media: “My son was swimming when he found the bones.

“When I went back for them, I could only bring back a part (of the skeleton).”

The rest of the bones were then collected by Amazonas Military Fire Brigade agents (CBMAM) before they were sent to the Legal Medical Institute (IML) where they will undergo DNA testing, according to local reports.
