In this March 4, 2009 photo provided by Chris Korbulic, from left, Chris Korbulic, Pedro Oliva, and Ben Stookesberry gather for a photo in front of Salto Belo falls on Rio Sacre, in Campos Novos, in central Brazil. Rescuers say that a South African man leading Americans, Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic, on a whitewater expedition in Central Africa was attacked by a crocodile and pulled from his kayak. The body of Hendri Coetzee has not been recovered following the Tuesday morning, Dec. 7, 2010 attack on the Lukuga River. Ciaran Donnelly, International Rescue Committee’s regional director in Congo, said Thursday, Dec. 9, that his organization had evacuated the two Americans to a nearby town after they paddled to safety. The three men were part of a mission to document unexplored whitewater in the region. (AP Photo/Courtesy Chris Korbulic, File)
