A man was bitten in the groin by a saltwater crocodile off the coast of the Northern Territory after he stepped into the reptile while wading through shallow water.
Elston Lami Lami was chasing Minsteril on Croker Island on Saturday at 12.30 pm at 12.30 pm when he stepped on what he thought was a sunken tree trunk.
The 42-year-old soon realized what he was up to – and the reptile still remained under his foot.
After waiting for about 15 seconds, the crocodile turned Mr Lami Lami aggressively and bit him on his right thigh.
& # 39; When he came up, when he turned around and I looked at his eye, he had those crocodile tears on it. Like … you're mine. You are my lunch, & said Mr. Lami Lami ABC.

He freed himself after kicking the animal with his other leg before the crocodile attacked again and bit him on the groin.
Lami Lami repeatedly hit the crocodile during his terrifying ordeal before his barking dogs and a screaming family member managed to distract the crocodile so that he could escape.
& # 39; I hit him in the nose three times, he let me go. Come back and try to attack me. When he snarled at me, I grabbed him, held him with two hands, and I got weak, so I thought the only way to get his attention was to hit him again, & he said.
Lami Lami believes the saltwater crocodile was approximately 4.5 meters long.
After the attack, Mr. Lami Lami made a half-hour walk back to his car before being treated at the Minjilang Community Health Center.
A medical response group from CareFlight met Mr. Lami Lami there before he was flown to Royal Darwin Hospital.
Mr. Lami Lami remains in a stable state in the hospital.
