A tourist swimming in a river in Australia has had a shock after a crocodile leapt onto him, slapping him in the face in the process.

The reptile had been sunning itself on a rock in a national park in the Northern Territory but then seemed to want to cool off.

The animal launched itself directly at Swedish tourist Felix Andersson, hitting him in the face before landing in the water.

Andersson and his friend Ulrik Bergsland quickly swam away laughing and were not hurt in the incident.

In fact the pair were so unfazed they carried on swimming in the lagoon.

一名泳客在澳洲一條河裡游泳時飽受驚嚇,因為一尾鱷魚不但撲向他,過程中還賞了他一耳光。

這尾爬蟲類動物原本在澳洲北部的一座國家公園的一塊大石頭上做日光浴,但稍後看似想清涼一下。

這尾動物直接撲向瑞典遊客菲力克斯.安德森,落水前打了他的臉。

安德森與友人烏爾瑞克.伯格史蘭德邊笑邊趕快游開,而且沒有在此事中受傷。

事實上,這兩人並不以為意,還繼續在此一潟湖裡游泳。
