Crocodiles are one of the most terrifying creatures known to mankind. They are extremely dangerous and known for their merciless nature. So when you’re facing one such reptile without an appropriate weapon, things can get messy.
The Herald reports of a miraculous case, which happened on Christmas Eve this year. Tafadzwa Kachere and his 11 years old son Tapiwa were about to cross a river in Mutoko, Zimbabwe, when the little boy was attacked by a hungry crocodile. His father wasn’t armed, but that didn’t stop him from trying to save his son’s life and his own with his bare hands. According to the report, the man jumped on the creature’s back and started poking its eyes with reeds and beating its head in desperate attempts to force the crocodile to open its mouth. Eventually the beast turned its aggression towards the boy’s father.
Both of them were able to walk away alive, but suffering major injuries for a life time.
