This is so amazing… it shows that a parent would truly do anything to keep their child safe!
In Zimbabwe, a villager fought off a crocodile with his bare hands to save his son from its powerful jaws.
It was Christmas Eve in the north-eastern district of Mutoko when Tafadzwa Kachere and his 11-year-old son, Tapiwa, were trying to cross a river.
While in the river, a croc attacked Tapiwa!
Poppa Tafadzwa immediately sprung into action, jumping on the back of the croc, trying to force its jaws open, punching its head and poking at its eyes.
Due to the furious nature of the parental instinct to tear the croc in half before letting it hurt his child, the croc eventually released the child… only to quickly turn on Tafadzwa! He eventually even freed himself of the beast.
Sadly, the child lost his leg and the father's arm was severely gored but they both at least survived!
We're just so glad that no one died!!
We wish them both a speedy recovery.
