Incredible footage has emerged of firefighters rescuing a 20ft-long crocodile from a drain during a 10-hour operation. But the rescue efforts were in vain as the reptile died hours later. The one-tone reptile was heard trashing around after getting stuck in the tidal dam in Kapar, Malaysia, on Saturday night.

Emergency services arrived at 11.41pm and spent 10 hours battling to free the beast while the high tide obscured it. They eventually winched it from the water at 10am on Sunday morning but it died several hours later.

"We also covered its eyes throughout the process so that it would not get aggressive."

The rescue took 10 hours overnight.

Vets who worked on the rescue said the crocodile will now have a post mortem examination to find the "cause and time of death, its species, gender, age and others."
