A 34-year-old Australian man has a woman nearly twice his age to thank for saving his life.

A huge crocodile nearly 14 feet long dragged the man out of his tent early Monday morning at a campsite in far northern Queensland, the Australian Associated Press reported.

A 60-year-old fellow camper heard the shrieks of the man's wife and child and, without hesitation, pounced onto the back of the giant reptile.

"She was also camping there," said Royal Flying Doctor Service (search) public affairs manager Stephen Pemberthy, "and she saw what was happening and she jumped on the croc."

Startled, the prehistoric beast let go of the man's legs, but then grabbed the woman and started heading toward the beach with her clamped in its jaws.

That's when a third camper, like the other two as yet unnamed, ran up and shot the crocodile dead.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (search) personnel, in the area hunting down feral pigs, saw the campers' rescue beacon and arranged a rescue helicopter.

Looks like the lake must have dried up and he found the gun he lost in that tragic boating accident.

Scary though tho, How many times has the croc just walked into a camp group/site and dragged someone away?
