July 14, 2016 – How A Brave 12-Year-Old Indonesian Girl Rescued Sister The Moment A Crocodile Grabbed Her

Two young girls from Indonesia fought off a crocodile in a river in Sumatra’s Riau province, local media reported on Thursday.

Al, 12, and Cek, 8, escaped with a bite on the hand and on the leg, respectively, after they were attacked near their village of Sungai Iliran, in Indragiri Hilir district, AFP reported.

“The girls were bathing in the river when Cek disappeared underwater suddenly, before reappearing with her leg in the jaws of a crocodile,” their mother Minah was quoted as saying.

Al swam up to the crocodile and grabbed her sister’s arm.
The reptile released its grip on her leg, and Al was able to drag her to the river bank, but not before being bitten herself, on the hand.

“Both sisters then screamed for help and their mother came with other villagers to their rescue, they were treated at a local health facility,” the District Police Chief Wicaksono said.

  1. Thank God for their lives! I bet it was a child croc. Or it is one of those rare miracles. Croc’s jaws are among the most powerful jaws in predators. Once they snap close, even 1000kg bulls may not excape.

  2. When an unaviodable danger stares at you in the face yet you go ahead to face the challenge even when its obvious there are chances you may not make it- That‘s Bravity.

    I take a stroll…

  3. God really loves them that was why they came out safely without being eaten by the crocodile. I thank God for their life.
