    Man shot in rescue from crocodile

    CANBERRA, Australia - A man rescued his colleague from the jaws of a crocodile in northern Australia but accidentally shot the unlucky co-worker in the process, police said Wednesday.

    The two farmhands were collecting wild crocodile eggs on a riverbank Tuesday in Northern Territory when a crocodile snatched one of them, Jason Green, by the arm, the Northern Territory Police said in a statement.

    "The male colleague shot at the crocodile, causing it to let go of the victim's arm, but a further shot hit the victim in the upper right arm," the statement said.

    The two men had been collecting eggs to boost the crocodile population at their farm in the northern city of Darwin. Their employer sent a helicopter that flew Green to a Darwin hospital for surgery.

    Police Commander Bob Harrison said Green's injuries were not life-threatening.

    "He's going to be very sick and sorry and have a very good story to tell," Harrison told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio.

    Police could provide no information about the crocodile's condition.

    Re: Man shot in rescue from crocodile

    Those Aussies crack me up.

    Remind me to tell you the time I consumed massive quantities of Libations with them in a place called Hurghada in Egypt and learned to play a game called "Flamer".

    It involved a Drunk Aussie (no pants), A roll of toilet paper, a Lighter and a Bar that he could run back and forth on with the crowd yelling "Flamer, Flamer".

    Of course the Egyptian Police didn't find it funny.
    ;D
