Woman Saves Husband from Crocodile

Lawrence and Kerryn Munro were walking with their dogs along the White Umfolzi River in South Africa. When they stopped to dip their feet in the water, a ten foot long crocodile grabbed Lawrence by the ankles!
Mr Munro, 33, said: "It was a matter of seconds. I grabbed hold of the rocks and started kicking the croc with my right foot. He let go and grabbed again, getting hold of both feet. I tried to get to my rifle, but I had been dragged closer to the water and couldn't reach it. Kerryn grabbed under my arm and around my neck and started pulling. Eventually the croc let go.

"My two-way radio had come loose and fallen into the river during the struggle so we couldn't call for help," he told the Mercury newspaper.

After pulling her husband free, Mrs Munro ran to the Makhamisa Base Camp for help. Mr Munro was airlifted to hospital in nearby Richards Bay, where he underwent operations to repair tendons in his right foot.

Dumbasses obviously knew that there was some danger since they were carrying a rifle around.
I mean glad the guy is ok, but how about next time, NOT sticking your feet in to a body of water that you know has crocs in it.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
