Croc drags man by foot out of tent

Pretoria – An angler from Botswana made a lucky escape over the weekend, when he survived a crocodile’s attempt to turn him into a midnight snack.

Volksblad reports that Bazil Roth was camping at the Rust de Winter dam in Limpopo when a 2,4 metre crocodile grabbed hold of his foot and tried to drag him out of his tent.  

Roth and his friend, Barend Lamprecht were spending the weekend fishing at the dam and had set up camp conveniently close to the water.

A short while after going to sleep, Roth woke up to the yells of Lamprecht who had felt something falling on top of the tent.  

They decided to investigate and spotted the large croc lurking in the water a few metres away from the tent. This is also when they discovered large tears in the tent canvas.

Although Lamprecht thought they could have been caused by the croc’s teeth, Roth laughed it off and went back to bed.  

Only to be woken a short while later again by an uncomfortable tug on his left foot.

Amid hysterical yelling and vigorous kicking, he managed to extract his foot from the reptile’s jaws at the expense of his sleeping bag, while Lamprecht pelted it with anything he could lay his hands on: tent pens, chairs and other camping equipment.  

Roth and his foot were fortunately left largely unscathed and the croc left them in peace for the rest of the night.  

The two men did, however, see it as a lesson: Never camp too close to the water and always expect the unexpected.
