A woman in Thailand decided to end her life in a horrible, public way, by jumping into a crocodile enclosure.

Police say the 65-year-old woman’s family told them she had seemed depressed.

But they didn’t expect her to walk into the reptile farm remove her shoes and jump into the pit filled with several hundred crocs.

Thai police say staff at the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo used sticks to try to keep the animals at bay but to no avail.

The Bangkok Times reports Wanpen Inyai isn’t the only person to commit suicide by crocodile. In 2002, a woman did the same thing at the same park.

Local radio stations talked to the owner of the park, Uthen Youngprapakorn. He told them the walkways in the park had additional security, and fences added.

The body couldn’t be positively identified after the incident, but the family believes it is Inyai because of identification found in the pond the next day.

DNA tests are being done to confirm the ID of the remains.
