Crocodile makes lunge at group of children in horror riverbank attack

A crazed crocodile was pictured lunging at a group of children who ran away screaming in terror.

The group were seen gathering at a boating ramp in Aurukun, Far North Queensland, Australia, on Wednesday.

They watched on at the massive saltwater crocodile as it glided through the water.

But chillingly the beast moved towards the group as it was sensing a potential meal.

Footage from bystander Rosie Woolla shows how the bare-footed children began yelling and screaming as the killer reptile drew closer. They even hurled a few objects into the water to try and scare it away.

The crocodile gave a huge snap of its powerful jaws before disappearing below the waterline.

Rosie said the crocodile appeared to be chasing a bottle through the water as bystanders attempted to lure the animal ashore to see how big it was.

She said she was terrified by the reptile and didn't want to get any closer while recording it with her phone.

Rosie added: ''There was a lot of shouting so I went to look and then saw the crocodile. It was so big. People threw things at it to scare it away.''

Earlier this week, a three-metre saltwater crocodile was filmed 100 metres from an Ingham school, 112km north-west of Townsville.

Crocodiles are among the most feared animals on the planet, due to their giant jaws and predatory nature.

Last year, a giant 17ft crocodile ate a woman alive after lunging over and pulling her into its cage.

She had been feeding the beast lumps of meat before the attack.
