Woman bitten by crocodile while posing for selfie with it in Thailand national park

Post by hhfarang » Mon Jan 02, 2017 10:16 pm

"A French tourist was bitten by a crocodile while reportedly posing to take a selfie with it at a National Park in Thailand.

The 41-year-old was visiting Khao Yai national park in Thailand with her husband. She is believed to have squatted down next to the reptile, which was at rest in a pond, in order to take a picture of herself with it.

As the photo was being taken, the crocodile bit her in the thigh.

She was rushed to hospital on a stretcher and is being treated for her injuries, which are not life-threatening.

The couple are thought to have veered off the walking path and onto wilder pastures despite signs warning them not to do so. ..."

Too bad she didn't fall into the hot pool at Yellowstone Nat. Park in US. Wouldn't be around to tell about that one. :banghead:

That will be a good holiday snap to show the family and friends back home.

41 years old ? Seriously?

I would expect this dangerous selfie nonsense from someone under the age of say 21, but 41?

I heard that she wanted a pair of shoes and a handbag for a souvenir.
nothing like 41 yr. old French female thigh for an afternoon snack.
