Talk about a lucky escape.
Cameron Timms, 14, had a very close encounter with a freshwater crocodile that bit him last Thursday, while he was swimming with his family at Moonshine Gorge in Western Australia.
“We were just standing in a group (in the water) and I was swimming through the middle when all of a sudden I felt something on the side of me,” Timms told The Kimberley Echo.
Fortunately Timms wasn’t badly injured, only suffering puncture wounds to his elbow and stomach. “I realised I was bleeding, I went into a bit of shock and didn’t know what was going on,” he said.
