KOMPAS.com – Two brothers came face-to-face with a crocodile when they went freediving at sea to catch fish in Kupang in Indonesia’s East Nusa Tenggara province on Friday, October 23.

The two fishermen from Lasiana Village in Kelapa Lima District, Titus Tunu Deta, 33, and his younger brother Hendrikus Duka Mete, 31, dived into sea together.

“I led the way and my brother was behind me,” Titus said on Friday.

When Titus rose to the surface to breathe, he quickly sensed something was not right as his brother’s diving flashlight and arrow were floating. But he did not see his brother.

Titus descended back into the water to look for his brother. Soon, he saw Hendrikus being attacked by the crocodile. Hendrikus fended off the attack and Titus pulled him to safety in a tug-of-war with the crocodile.

Titus immediately pulled Hendrikus' leg to prevent his brother from being bitten by the crocodile.

The crocodile pulled back Hendrikus’ body. However, Titus did not give up. He pulled Hendrikus as hard as he could until the animal released his brother.

Titus brought his brother back to shore. Hendrikus suffered head wounds, and his left arm and right chest were also badly injured from the bite.
