This young mother showed how brave she was as she reportedly rescued her three-year-old son from the jaws of a giant crocodile.
Per the reports, the 30-year-old woman whose name was given as Maurina Musisinyana reportedly left her two children to play under an umbrella on the bank of the Runde River in Zimbabwe while she went fishing nearby.
Reports claim that she ran back to the river bank when heard a scream and found a crocodile dragging away her three-year-old son identified as Gideon.
Upon seeing what was happening, she jumped on the crocodile and used her fingers to block its nose, forcing it to release its grip on the boy.
Narrating how she did it, the young mother said;
“I pressed its nose hard, a tip I learnt from the elders long back. If you suffocate a crocodile from its nose, it loses its strength and that is exactly what I did. I used my other arm to free my baby’s head from its jaws.”
She was able to snatch her toddler son away but not without injury as the crocodile bit her hand.
