An Aussie Dude Jumped In Crocodile Waters To Impress A Girl, Got His Arm Bitten Off, But He’s Got No Regrets
Daily Mail – 18-year-old Lee De Paauw almost had his armed ripped off by a monster four-metre long crocodile after jumping into infested waters in an attempt to win over glamorous British backpacker Sophie Paterson.
The foolhardy teenager was lucky to get away with his life, punching the huge reptile in the face after it sunk its jaws into his arm and tried to drown him in a ‘death roll’.
Tourist Sophie Paterson, 24, was having drinks with Mr De Paauw in the early hours of Sunday morning when she dared him to jump into the Johnstone River in the far north of Queensland.
The teenager, who lives nearby, foolishly went for it – only to be attacked by a huge saltwater crocodile that was lurking in the creek.
Now at the end of the video, Lee says that he’s got a movie date coming up with the British girl who challenged him into the croc waters…not so fast:
But that was where Mr De Paauw’s fortune ended, with his backpacker crush saying she was not impressed by his antics – adding that there was no chemistry between them.
‘He’s too young for me,’ she said. ‘Being attacked by animals doesn’t really do it for me.’
That’s a tough one. I would say that even if you’re not into the dude, if you’re a girl who challenges a guy to jump into crocodile infested waters, you need to give him a date if a crocodile mauls him in the process. Sure he might be missing an arm or eating through a tube as a respirator barely keeps him alive, doesn’t matter, a social contract is a social contract all the same. No hand stuff required (though it would be nice given how he lost 50% of his trying to impress her drunk dumb ass) but a kiss on the cheek at the end. That’s just good manners after getting someone eaten by a crocodile.
That said though, I don’t blame the girl for wanting to get away as soon as possible. Gouging a crocodile’s eye to free your arm from his death roll is pretty bad ass…but jumping into crocodile waters to impress a drunk tourist chick is not necessarily the kind of mental level most women want a guy at. Maybe if he fought the croc off and came up uninjured, she probably would have banged him on the pier because of how manly it all was. But when your arm is flopping around barely attached and you’re going into shock, not necessarily dampening of panties there. And then cooler heads prevail and she’s back to the UK bragging about how Aussie dudes were practically killing themselves for a shot at her. Accidental crocodile wrestling for love, truly a more volatile game than expected.
Here are some more pics of the girl from Facebook…she seems a little more croc attack worthy here than in the video but let’s just say I’m skeptical on using crocodiles, monkeys, or even a kangaroo to impress her:
…maybe if she had some of those vintage Keeley Hazell British chick heavy hangers. Currently I’d say she’s probably worth a dip in Larry II (RIP)’s tank, no more no less.
