“Like Crocodile Dundee” – Australian, 60, blocks crocodile with belt knife
According to a government spokesman, the probability of escaping such an attack is “zero”: a fisherman in Australia blocked a full-grown crocodile with a small knife. He just couldn’t believe it.
EThere must have been dramatic scenes. In Queensland, an Australian defeated a large saltwater crocodile attack with a small belt knife.
A 60-year-old man who was fishing in the far reaches of the McIvor River was suddenly attacked by an animal and grabbed by his legs. Wednesday’s broadcast was reported by 9 News. The man clung to a swampy branch, but the reptile was able to pull him towards the water.
But then he “removed his knife from his belt and stabbed the crocodile in the head until it was released,” the ministry said in a statement. The animal has finally dropped him, said Matt Bryan, a spokesman for the Environment Ministry. The media hailed the man as the “real crocodile Dundee”. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, from where he was taken to a clinic in Cairns.
“It was an absolutely horrible experience.”
The 60-year-old was treated at a local hospital and then flew to a clinic in Cairns, where he received treatment a week later. A spokesman for the health ministry said his condition was stable.
However, according to Brian, he was “very shocked” by the incident. “It was an absolutely horrible experience. He will never forget it,” a ministry spokesman continued. However, he was “lucky to be still alive”.
Officially, however, the figures do not give this estimate by the Ministry: in recent years, crocodile attacks on people have increased overall, but they are rarely dangerous. The number of saltwater crocodiles in Australia has risen sharply since it was placed in conservation in 1971.
