"I heard my mother scream, 'Amoi, your father got attacked by a crocodile!' which rushed me to go and seek my father who was outside of the house at the time," said Zairina.
"Before being attacked by the young crocodile, my father was doing some improvement works on the exterior of our home," she recalled.
She recalled that her father did not realise the presence of reptile until he was bitten.
In order to save himself, he hit and slapped the crocodile until the reptile released its bite. He suffered injuries to parts of his chest and went to a nearby health clinic for treatment.
