Crocodile attack victim recovering in darwi카지노 사이트n hospital after being struck by crocodile
A Darwin hospital patient has had his jaw broken during a violent attack by a crocodile.
The 32-year-old was walking on South Yarra Drive early this morning when he went to wash some clothes.
He says when he stopped to use the washroom he saw an eight-metre crocodile about 30 metres away.
«The crocodile came up to the side of the road and was just starting to roll up and come towards me, my right jaw just snapped,» he said.
«I was about to call out to him for help. He didn’t reply — he just came at me like a ferret.»
The victim says he los예스카지노t consciousness before he heard another noise.
«I thought maybe he’d come running home. I just tried to calm myself down, but he didn’t budge,» he said.
A paramedic arrived and treated the injured victim for fractures to his jaw and internal bleeding.
He has since been discharged from hospital and is now back home in Brisbane after spending about a week in hospital in Victoria.
The crocodile has since been captured by a local fisherman.
The owner of a nearby chicken farm is in awe.
«I saw it walk right across the road as I was just walking back over here,» said Jack Anderson.
«It was about this big, you could literally see the whole road. It just kind of went across the field and came over the hedge and I came across it — and it just went back up and over the hedge the other side.»
It was only on Tuesday the kil카지노 사이트ler finally caught up with the victim.
«The guy’s pretty calm now, and he’s talking to the guy’s mum,» said Mrs Anderson.
«He’s got a pretty positive outlook — if he gets some further support from the family members around here, they can really take care of him.»
She says the family has already offered to take in the baby crocodile for adoption.
