Drunken Teen Frees Arm From Croc’s Mouth With Big Punch To Head

A teenager in Australia nearly lost his arm after he jumped into a crocodile-infested river on a dare and was attacked by one of the ginormous reptiles. The only thing that saved the 18-year old was his quick punch to the croc’s head.

The West Australian reports the 18-year-old man underwent surgery Saturday, hours after he jumped into the Johnstone River at Innisfail. The teen was reportedly climbing out of the water onto a wharf when the croc leapt from the water and seized the teen’s left arm. He likely would’ve have been dragged to his death had he not punched the croc in the head with his free right hand.

The teen’s friends also helped rescue him, which seems only fair because they were the ones who dared him to make the jump in the first place.

“Circumstances that led up to this attack are quite sketchy but reports from the scene are that he was dared to jump into the water, which he did,” Queensland Ambulance Service senior operations supervisor Neil Noble told The West. “Unfortunately the area is well known for its crocodile population and we’re grateful that he survived this incident because it could have turned out to be quite fatal.”

As you’ll no doubt be shocked to find out, the teens were reportedly drinking before the incident.
