If you are going to pee in a lagoon, you should really pay attention to the warning signs. 

A drunk US tourist lost his entire arm while vacationing in Cancun, Mexico. As the story was reported, Cal Monzon was heavily intoxicated and strayed from the Cancun Hotel Zone to an isolated lagoon. It was suspected that he went there to relieve himself but missed all the warning signs about crocodiles.

An on duty security guard reported that he heard screams coming from the lagoon at approximately 3:30am. Upon arriving at the scene, he found Monzon missing his entire right arm above the elbow. Paramedics took the man to a private hospital where the rest of his arm was later amputated.

This is not the first time an incident like that has happened in Cancun. For example, back in 2015, another intoxicated tourist was killed by a crocodile. In almost an exact same scenario, the crocodile was able to take the man underwater. It wasn’t until the next day that they found him dead floating in the lagoon.
