Gaaaaaa!

A swimmer narrowly escaped a giant crocodile chasing after him as onlookers at a Mexican beach watched in horror.

Fox News reported that the tourist  was captured on video frantically swimming away from the croc.

The swimmer was trying to reach the shore before he was the animal’s lunch.

One of the onlookers threw something at the crocodile, which promptly stopped and swam the other way.

The footage was taken by Manuel Carrera and originally published on Noticaribe.
