Released CCTV footage shows a 6ft crocodile in Africa frolicking its reptilian body into an abiding pool, where a man and woman were swimming. Creeping between sun lounge chairs, the crocodile makes a mad dash into the water, heading for the unaware couple. It begins to snap its jaw at the woman, who attempts to fight off the behemoth creature.
As for the man? He in a rather un-gentleman act of fear hops out of the pool to leave his girlfriend to fend for herself. Thankfully, she manages to escape the croc’s clutches and being forced deeper into the water. The woman desperately paddles back to the shallow end, as the man sheepishly attempts to distract the animal.
More than 11,000 people have now watched the YouTube video with many sharing their disgust at how the man cowardly left the woman in the pool, who suffered bites and wounds from the encounter.
Some were not so critical, stating humans differ in reactionary ways to fight-or-flight situations. “You can never say what you would do in that situation unless you’ve been in that situation. Your survival instincts kick in and it’s fight or flight,” Harley Wilson writes.
