A tourist in Mexico had a gritty start to the summer when his arm was bitten off by a crocodile after he waded into a lagoon to urinate.
Cal Monzon, 40, who is believed to be from the U.S., was left in critical condition after the crocodile attacked him in Nichupte Lagoon in Cancun on Sunday, biting his arm off up to the elbow.
After a struggle with the animal, the man managed to get away and was found by a security guard who heard his screams.
He was transported to a nearby hospital, where the rest of his arm was amputated due to the severity of the damage caused.
The newspaper also cited reports that state the man was intoxicated when he decided to wade into the lagoon. despite a number of signs around the lagoon warning people about the estimated 150 crocodiles in residence there.
