Thai Trainer's Arm And Death Rolling Him In Front Of A Horrified Crowd


A Thai crocodile trainer has amazingly escaped serious injury after a three metre man-eater grabbed a hold of his arm and performed a 'death roll'.

Amazing mobile phone footage shows the scary moment that the crocodile attempted to tear the mans arm from his body during a show at Phuket Crocodile World.

The video shows Mr Anusak standing in front of the giant predator wearing a red shirt, red shorts and no shoes as a small crowd watches on with anticipation.

The footage was shot on Friday and the trainer named as 47-year-old Anusak Salangam, according to The Phuket News.

Mr Anusak then taps the crocodile on the head before performing a series of movements.

But it all goes horribly wrong when he taps the animal on the head one last time before inserting his right arm into its jaws.

The animal grabs hold of Mr Anusak arm and begins to death roll - a maneuver performed by crocodiles on their prey which helps to tear off chunks of flesh.

But fortunately for Mr Anusak he rolls with the animal, managing to free himself and avoid having his arm torn off.

'He luckily had only minor scratches from the bite,' staff at Crocodile World told The Phuket News.

'But Mr Anusak is very experienced in handling crocodiles – and very brave – and he is back at work entertaining tourists at shows today,' the staffer said.

Phuket Crocodile World promotes on their website the shows as a chance for tourists to take some nice photos and even offers the chance for tourists to sit on the animals back after the show.
