Kachere immediately jumped onto the crocodile's back and tried to force open its jaws, beating its head with his fists and poking its eyes with reeds.

The crocodile then released the child and turned on to the father who wrestled to free himself from its grasp.

Even though they survived, the child lost a leg and Kachere's arm was severely gored.
