Queensland Man Escapes Close Encounter with Saltwater Crocodile While Snorkeling Off Cape York Coast

On Saturday, Marcus McGowan had a close encounter with a saltwater crocodile while snorkeling off the Cape York Coast in Australia. He was able to pry the reptile's jaws off his head and fend it off with his right hand, which was subsequently bitten. McGowan was taken to hospital and treated for lacerations to his head and right hand, with the Queensland Government's hospital service saying he was "very lucky" to have escaped the attack.
