9 News reported that the fisherman was spear fishing on a remote beach in Cooktown, Queensland. Meanwhile, the fisherman came face to face with a 4.5 meter crocodile.
Valerie Noble of Queensland Ambulance Service said the crocodile bit the man three times and pulled him to the bottom of the water.
“The fisherman said that he stuck his fingers in the crocodile’s eyes several times and managed to escape and swam towards the shore,” Noble said.
“He’s an extremely lucky man. Not many people live to tell a story like this.”
The man was taken to the hospital with injuries to his head, abdomen and legs. It was announced that the condition of the fisherman, who was treated, was good.
The authorities, on the other hand, contacted law enforcement and asked people who will come to the region for fishing to be warned before entering the water.
