It’s okay, she’ll lose her foot, but be alive, she told her friends. “Then I was told that my foot would be fine and that I would walk again, which was a tremendous relief,” said Osborn-Smith.

The animal dragged the woman into the water of the Zambezi River. As a result, several people also jumped into the water, a friend had repeatedly hit the crocodile on the nose until the animal let go of Osborn-Smith.
