    Australian Man Saves Wife From Crocodile Attack By Jumping on its Back

    DARWIN, Australia A man rescued his wife from the jaws of a crocodile in remote northern Australia by jumping on its back, police said Thursday.

    The woman, 36, suffered leg and hand injuries in the attack late Wednesday in an Outback creek where the couple were swimming, Northern Territory Police spokesman David Wright said. But the 2.5-meter (8-foot) reptile released the woman and fled when the man jumped on its back. The man was not injured.

    "It was real Crocodile Dundee stuff," Wright said, referring to the 1986 movie featuring an Outback hunter who can kill crocodiles with a knife.

    The attack happened 160 kilometers (100 miles) southwest of Darwin, Australia's northernmost city, where the woman was taken to treat wounds that included eight teeth punctures in her thigh. The names of the couple were not released.

    "The husband's very swift and diligent actions have saved the day," Royal Darwin Hospital general manager Len Notaros told reporters.

    It was the fourth close call involving a crocodile this year in the Northern Territory.

    Last week, police opened fire on a crocodile as it closed in on a drunken 27-year-old man who had accepted a dare to swim out to an offshore crocodile trap, and last month a crocodile nearly snatched a 27-year-old Israeli tourist from his boat on a river.

    In January, a man rescued his colleague from a crocodile's jaws but accidentally shot the unlucky co-worker in the process.
    Hmm, looks like natural selection nearly happened for this woman.

    As for the drunken idiot who swam out to the crocodile trap...exactly why did they shoot the crocodile, who, it seems to me, was just acting like a crocodile?

    What idiots. Swimming in waters you know are infested with crocodiles. I agree, NATURAL SELECTION. I also agree that the police should have left that croc have the drunk.
