According to the BBC and the Daily Mail, two fishermen rescued a naked man in a mangrove swamp haunted by crocodiles in northern Australia. At that time, he was trapped in a tree, and there could be crocodiles in the water at any time, covered with mud and mosquito bite marks.
On the evening of January 3rd local time, fishermen Kevin Joyner and Cam Foster stumbled upon the man in the East Point Mangrove near Darwin. At that time, they were releasing the crab trap when they heard a man shouting for help.
When they looked at it, they found a naked man sitting on the trunk of the tree above the water! “We heard him shouting ‘Help’ and he begging us for water,” Joyner said.
The two fishermen hesitated to stop because they thought he looked like a madman, naked and covered in mud.
But he said, “I can see you, please don’t leave me here!” “When we approached, we saw him covered in mud, scarred and swollen feet,” Joyner said.
The swamp around Darwin is called “crocodile paradise” because the water is cloudy and the light is dim.
Giant saltwater crocodiles often breed and lay eggs there. Two kind fishermen finally allow the man to jump on their boat, and Foster also wears his shorts to cover his shame.
The man got on the boat and told them that he had been here for four days and had been eating snails raw for a living. Two fishermen didn’t understand why he was naked, so they tried to talk to him.
But he seemed to be stimulated and kept talking nonsense, only saying that he lost his way at the New Year’s party and finally got here.
The two fishermen then gave him a bottle of beer and called an ambulance.
Subsequently, ambulances took the man to the Royal Darwin Hospital for treatment.
Originally, I thought the story would end here, but I didn’t expect that there would be a reversal later.
Australian police confirmed to the media that the man was a fugitive suspected of gun robbery.
He cut off his electronic tracking equipment a few days ago and escaped from the detention center.
Police said: “He has been arrested and is now receiving treatment at the Royal Darwin Hospital.
For the past few days, he has been hiding in the bushes of Howard Springs and Palmerston to avoid the police.
It is speculated that the man must have traveled through several suburbs and towns to reach the mangroves north of Darwin, but he was caught in this way.
It’s really a big skynet, it’s neglectful!
