A slimy, glob-like creature dubbed Gollum has terrified children after it slithered out of a lake and clambered over the rocks towards them.
The young teenagers were playing by the waterfront in a Panama lake near Cerro Azul when the bald beast emerged from a cave behind a waterfall. They started screaming as it shuffled out “as if to attack them”. […]
But in a “desperate bid to defend themselves” four children grabbed rocks from the beach and hurled them at the beast.
Having killed it they picked up the body and tossed it back into the lake, before fleeing.
