Man is chased by a crocodile - level 3

Man is chased by a crocodile - level 3

01-09-2014 15:00

Casually going for a swim in a beautiful remote part of Mexico? Well, you should probably watch out for the locals, as this man got the shock of his life when a huge crocodile chased him to shore.

Amateur footage has emerged showing a swimmer frantically trying to reach the beach whilst being stalked by a massive crocodile.

Panicked tourists on the overhanging Boca Paila Bridge watched in terror, as the man made a beeline for dry land.

As the croc drew closer, luckily a quick-thinking onlooker threw a large object in the water to stop the snapper in his tracks.

While the video can't be independently verified, it's thought to have been captured by Manuel Carrea not too long ago and he hoped the footage would urge tourists to stop feeding the local wildlife. Yup, they certainly might think twice about it now!

Difficult words: huge (very big), chase (follow), frantically (in panic), stalk (follow), massive (very big), make a beeline for something (hurry directly to something), draw (come), to stop somebody in their tracks (to make somebody stop doing something), snapper (crocodile).
