He was trying to stir his mate, mate.
An 18-year-old Australian man jumped into a physique of water famous to be inhabited by crocodiles to show a traveller how tough he was.
Telling Nine News Australia that he’d drank “10 cups of goon” — boxed booze — before coming up with the suspicion at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, Lee de Paauw got pounded almost instantly the moment he entered Queensland’s Johnstone River.
“I’ve never listened a man roar like that,” pronounced Sophie Paterson, de Paauw’s muse.
Though the Australian punched the 12-foot crocodile in the face, the voracious invertebrate nonetheless proceeded to drag him for scarcely 20 feet in the water.
“Do you know that many of the country thinks you’re one of the stupidest people around right now?”
Just as the croc was about to go for a “death roll,” in which it would toss its large physique to one side to turn off a piece of its victim, de Paaw managed to tool its eye, causing it to let him go.
“Do you know that many of the country thinks you’re one of the stupidest people around right now?” a Nine News Australia contributor asked him.
Said de Paauw, “Yup, we do.”
While explaining that he wants the crocodile to “have a happy life,” the teen shielded a decision that resulted in a blood-stained arm and both broken skeleton in his forearm by saying, “Haters gonna hate.”
Queensland paramedic Neil Noble told the Australian Associated Press, “Hopefully surgeons can help him and revive full use of his arm.”
Paterson, who compared the occurrence to a stage from “Jaws,” has given concluded to go see a film with him.
