My Great Grandfather:

A long time ago when my grandad was young, his father was bitten by a crocodile. crocodileThey were fishing in Mullaman River. They caught many fish. Then the wind stopped. My grandfather's dad was sitting near the riverbank. A crocodile jumped out of the water and grabbed him. As the crocodile took my grandfather's dad across the water, my grandfather picked up a spear and speared the croc. The spear landed in its belly and killed the croc.  My grandfather swam across to the other side and picked up my great grandfather. He had been bitten in the side of his stomach. Other young boys helped take him to the Camp where he died.
