    You don't need the underlined part. Instead, say:

    Bangkok, Thailand -- A giant crocodile bit a forty-one-year-old lady. She had been visiting Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park.

    Though many warning signs are at various places in the park, visitors reach through fences and over railings and take pictures near the dangerous animals.

    It is probably the case that the woman was bitten as she was getting up. (That makes more sense than my interpretation.)

    I am pretty sure that the crocodile was not taking a selfie.
