Melbourne, Mar 13 (ANI): A brave mum saved her adult daughter from the jaws of a large crocodile on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

The 25-year-old daughter, Trisna, remains in hospital with deep cuts to her legs after the large crocodile grabbed her as she bathed in Batang Hari River, south Sumatra, a week ago, reported Indonesian newspaper Indo Pos.

Her mother Rohima jumped into the river to save her after hearing her screams from her nearby house, in Mukut village.

“I’m actually afraid of crocodiles, even with snakes I’m afraid,” quoted Rohima, as saying.

“My daughter is still talking in her sleep, that’s why I have to stay with her every night. The crocodile was very big, the colour was blackish, the length about seven metres,” she said.

“I jumped into the river, getting close to that bastard animal, but because my daughter was caught my fear disappeared.

“I kicked its body - it’s mouth bit Trisna’s leg I opened it so that the jaw was loose.

“A soon as I saw my daughter was caught I thought her life would not be saved, but then God saved my daughter, she added.

Trisna received 50 stitches to her legs and remains in hospital.(ANI)
