The river is known to be infested with crocodiles.

Lee De Paauw jumped into the river after drinking with a group of friends.

Moments after jumping into the river, he was attacked by a crocodile and dragged six meters deep into the the river.

He says that he managed to swim to the stairs and came out with a bite in his left arm.

Doctors say De Paauw will not lose his arm but will surely be scared for life.
