Wildlife tour operator bitten by crocodile.
A wildlife tour operator in Australia says he is lucky to be alive after a crocodile lunged from a river and chomped his hand. Sean Dearly, 60, was attacked on Monday on the Adelaide River, near Darwin, which is renowned for its jumping crocodiles. The crocs are known to rise vertically from the water to snatch chicken carcasses dangled on long poles from tourist cruise boats. Mr Dearly was cruising along the water with 18 tourists when he was bitten by the 7ft croc in an incident which almost cost him his hand.
