How far do we go for the sake of love? For Lee De Paauw, he'd be willing to jump into a deadly crocodile-infested water if asked to. For many, dying for someone you love or even just risking your life is foolish or ridiculous but Lee takes this matter seriously.
After being dared by British tourist Sophie Paterson, a woman he admired, Lee flung himself into the crocs with no hesitation. According to him, the woman promised him a date if he can subject himself to the ordeal.
In the name of love, Lee fought the deadly crocodile. The wild animal caught Lee by its jaw and was even able to drag him 6 meters away. Lee fought and attempted to punch the animal in its snout to defend himself. Fortunately for Lee, his move to gouge it in the eye saved his life as the crocodile let him go.
"She didn't even know I had been attacked at first. She thought I was pulling her leg until I hopped out of the water with my arm hanging down," Lee told.
The incident put him at risk of losing his arm. At the end, he sustained two broken bones that had to undergo surgery in order to save it.
True to her word, the woman went out on a date with Lee. However, the incident apparently became a turn off for her after discovering a few things about Lee.
The woman reportedly told Lee, "I've never heard a guy scream like that."
"You know, he was obviously terrified and he was obviously in agony. You know, it was just sheer panic."
Apparently, the crocodile was a target for capture and removal said the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.
