A man in Australia has been rescued from an island where he was stuck for three days after a crocodile attacked him and bit his kayak.
The unidentified kayaker was on Townshend Island where bad weather and a low tide left him stuck. Although the crocodile’s bite didn’t pierce the boat, he said that he fended off the crocodile and rowed to the island out of panic.
He was able to activate a location beacon without which he might have been stranded for an even longer period. “He was very fortunate,” a spokeswoman for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority told journalists when he was rescued today.
