An Australian racehorse trainer sured an attack by a 15ft crocodile in the Fitzroy River, Queensland, Australia, after being rescued by his brave horse.

Jim Morrison was dragged to safety by his horse after the giant crocodile attacked and rammed his leg while he was training in the river close to his yard in Rockhampton.”My mare sppoked and because I still had hold of the bridle, she pulled me back up the bank,” said Mr Morrison. “When I first went in the river, I saw the horse prick up its ears, but I didn’t think anything about it.”
