ID Love to Pet a Crocodile


Recommended Posts

A tourist in Phillippines was savaged by a 12-foot crocodile after as he posed with it to snap some selfies. Nehemias Chipada, 68, climbed in a pool with the reptile at a theme park in the Philippines to take pictures, believing it to be a life-like model.

Chipada, from the Misamis Oriental province, was visiting the Amaya View amusement park in Cagayan de Oro City with his family to celebrate his birthday on November 10, when the attack took place.

As Chipada stood holding his phone in his right hand, the crocodile lunged at him grabbing his dangling left arm and dragging him into the water in front of his terrified family, Yahoo News reported.

Fortunately, Chipada was able to break free of the animal and escape with his limbs intact, reportedly taking with him one of the crocodile's teeth. According to his daughter, Chipada is recovering from the attack in Northern Mindanao Medical Center and had received surgery on his left arm.
