January 29th – On the 28th local time, a 44-year-old Australian man was bitten on the head by a two-meter-long crocodile while swimming.
At the critical moment, he opened the mouth of the crocodile with his hand and miraculously survived.
According to the British Daily Star, the man swam in Lake Placid near Cairns, Queensland at about 12.45 p.m. that day.
While he was enjoying the pleasure of drifting, he suddenly suffered a sharp pain on his head. “We saw a clear crocodile bite on his head when we arrived at the scene, but he was very calm,” said Sweeney, an intensive care worker.
Sweeney said, “He described to us that the crocodile bit his head and almost died.
He tried his best to pry the crocodile’s mouth open with his hand, but the crocodile still bit his left hand.”
The man was stabbed by a crocodile on his scalp, side face, finger and shoulder, but the injury was not serious enough to be fatal, Sweeney said.
If a crocodile bites a densely veined neck or throat, he may die. The man was undoubtedly lucky, and it was the best result.”
