According to reports, 65-year-old Terry Donovan, was at the Staaten River Fishing and Wilderness Lodge in crocodile-infested northern Queensland when he became isolated this week.

“The first one I saw was sitting out the back on the veranda in about a foot of water, maybe a bit more,” said Donovan. “I thought to myself, ‘Well, there’s a warning, there’s a crocodile there. Where there’s one, there’s probably two or three or more’.”

Donovan was eventually spotted by a passing helicopter which had gone to check on him after he failed to answer his satellite phone. Officials then alerted a local fisherman who rescued him.
