Crocodile attacks couple in hotel pool
A late night swim has turned into a nightmare for a couple after a crocodile crawled into their pool at an African resort.
The CCTV vision posted on YouTube on Friday shows the pair embracing each other in the pool, unaware of the giant predator lurking in the shadows.
Using its lightning fast reflexes, the crocodile darts towards the water and dives in, immediately snapping at the pair.
The man manages to leap out of the pool leaving the woman to fend off the carnivorous reptile on her own.
As she races towards the pool’s edge, the crocodile swims towards her and attempts to drag her underwater.
Her partner notices the impending attack and jumps back into the water, pushing the crocodile away.
The couple manage to escape the pool with only a few bite marks.
The video which was taken at a resort in Kariba, Zimbabwe, has been viewed almost 14,000 times on YouTube, and shared across the globe by a plethora of social media users and media organisations.
