A harmless freshwater crocodile has savagely bitten a tourist who was swimming in a popular Northern Territory waterfall.
The 36-year-old man was enjoying an evening swim in Wangi Falls, in Litchfield National Park just south of Darwin, when a crocodile crept up behind him and bit his leg.
'He looked down and he had a baby croc hanging off him' NT Police Superintendent Bob Rennie said.
