Would you bleed in order to woo someone? Eighteen-year-old Lee DePaauw from Queensland, Australia was drinking with a group of friends that included British tourist Sophie Paterson. He sought to impress Paterson by jumping into the Johnston River to prove "backpacks were more likely to get eaten by a crocodile than Australians." That theory didn't hold up, as Paterson says she then "watched in horror" as a ten-foot gator chomped up De Paauw's arm. De Pauuw was dragged nearly 20 feet by the croc until he punched it in the eye with his other, less maimed arm. The teen is still in the hospital receiving treatment for broken bones and several gauges. Paterson has agreed to go on a movie date once De Pauuw is released from the hospital. De Paauw told local media, "It was all worth it. She's beautiful, caring, and kind."
