25-year-old croc handler Renee Robertson knows full well that she has a dangerous job, but that doesn’t make the sudden attack she survived at the Billabong Sanctuary in Queensland, Australia any less scary.

Robertson was present for a crocodile feeding show when one of the ginormous reptiles emerged from the water and attacked.

The handler was bitten by the croc named “Tipper” and a bystander recorded most of the incident, albeit with a somewhat obstructed view.

Another handler helped stop the attack with a stick.

Robertson suffered serious arm injuries and had to have surgery.

According to Mashable, eight other people were treated for shock.

Despite the attack, Tipper the croc will not be put down.
