Crocodile leaps at tourists while swimming in Australia [Video]


Amateur video shot in Australia shows a crocodile leaping at a tourist as he swims in Litchfield National Park in northern Australia.

Felix Andersson, Jakob Hellberg and Ulrik Bergsland were testing new underwater cameras when they spotted the creature sitting on a rock, they told the BBC.

When they moved in for a closer look, the crocodile suddenly lunged at them.

“We started going closer… and I swear… as the cameraman got closer, I guess it just wanted to get back in the water so it jumped,” Andersson told the BBC.

“It landed on my shoulder … I was really shocked. I went straight underwater and swam away. People are saying that we were really stupid for doing that, and after watching the video, I have to agree.”

No one was injured.

The original video has been watched nearly 200,000 times on YouTube.
