    CNN) -- Australian police are searching for a saltwater crocodile which killed one man and kept two other men trapped up a tree for 22 hours until they could be rescued by helicopter.

    The men were attacked by the four-meter (13-foot) crocodile in the Finniss River in the remote Northern Territory after they entered the river to wash their motorbikes.

    The attack occurred on Sunday afternoon when the animal dragged 22-year-old Brett Mann under the water as he stood in the river.

    His two 19-year-old companions rushed into the water to try and save him but the crocodile began to attack them, forcing them to climb a tree in the middle of the river to escape.
