CANCUN, Mexico (AP) - Mexican authorities say a crocodile attacked a homeless man and bit off his right hand near a lagoon in the resort city of Cancun.

Cancun tourist police say in a Tuesday statement that Alejandro Lopez was wandering near an area of mangroves when he was attacked.

Police found the 27-year-old man lying on the shore of the Nichupte lagoon Monday and took him to a hospital.

The crocodile attack occurred near the hotel and nightclub area in Cancun, where signs warn of the presence of the reptiles.
