Woman uses thong to scare off croc

A YOUNG woman has managed to ward off a crocodile using only a piece of rubber footwear.

The croc had been coming toward her in waters near the East Alligator River, in Kakadu National Park, the BBC reports.

"I don't think she realised how dangerous this kind of behaviour is," Lundon Anlezark, who filmed the incident, said.

The crocodile was approached for comment but shied away at the sound of our incoming footwear.
