At a local Zimbabwe hotel, one couple experienced a vacation they’d never forget.

While taking a dip in the hotel pool late at night, a juvenile Nile crocodile attacked the couple, who were somewhat close to the edge.

In the footage captured by YouTuber Zimboo88, the man is seen jumping out of the water and leaving his female companion behind. The crocodile managed to attack the woman and bite her arm.
