With his mouth open, the crocodile grabs her hands and begins to drag her. Those who were witnesses to the incident began to panic and scream. A fearless co-worker by the name of Todd Christopher bravely went into the crocodile's enclosure, seized the animal with all of his strength, and attempted to free the woman's hands from the animal's hold.
