So, a tourist decided to go for a refreshing dip in a Mexican lake.
Locals know to take extreme caution when swimming in this lake as a 3-and-a-half-metre-long crocodile lives underneath a bridge there. The tourist, however, did not know this.
The video starts halfway through the crocodile’s pursuit of the tourist.
In the background you can hear viewers shouting in horror at the scenes. Luckily one smart onlooker threw something at the crocodile to distract it, giving the tourist a bit of time to escape.
The lad videoing, Manuel Carrera, said the reptile is fed by local fisherman. The croc is also apparently “an expert in stealing fish from the amateur fisherman who don’t reel in their catches quickly,” he said.
I think I would have shat my pants.
