Dad Films Teenage Sons Swimming With 8ft Crocodile While On Holiday


A jaw-dropping video shows a tourist dad taking his teenage sons for a swim on holiday – with an 8ft crocodile!

Franz Pramendorfer, from Austria, clearly thought swimming with dolphins was soooo last year, so he, his wife and two sons aged 18 and 16, went for a dip with the deadly croc.

And the daredevil 53-year-old filmed the whole thing with his GoPro Camera as the family swam just inches from the reptile's jaws.

Franz spotted the eight foot snapper from a tour boat in Jardines de la Reina – an island south of Cuba - when he decided to dive in for a closer look.

He said: "The guide said it was okay to snorkel with the crocodile because it was small, so I got in and after 10 minutes my son Frank joined me.
