An Australian fisherman risked his life by riding a log – naked – down a flooded crocodile infested river to win a bet.
“I’d enjoyed a few beers and it seemed a good idea at the time,” he said.
“We weren’t catching any fish – because the river was flowing too fast – so I thought, ‘Why not?’ But when I woke up the next morning, it didn’t seem so clever.”
Witness Billy Innes said his friend had thought nothing of the dangers of drowning or being eaten by a ‘saltie’. “It was hilarious,” he said.
