In August, a 79-year-old man was attacked by a crocodile at the Skansen aquarium in Stockholm. Now the man, who lost an arm, tells about the accident for Aftonbladet. - It felt like it was trying to pull me over the glass. There was a tug of war between the crocodile and my brothers who tried to help me. I was like a rubber band between them, ”the 79-year-old tells the magazine.



On August 20, a company had a crayfish on the aquarium. The man would sing a song and climb up the stairs in front of the glassed-in crocodile pond.

- I couldn't start until the crocodile grabbed my left arm. It was like a cannon shot. I didn't have a chance to get out, he tells Aftonbladet.

With the help of other dinner guests, the 79-year-old finally managed to get loose. He was bleeding heavily from his left arm and was taken directly to the hospital where he operated. The day after, the 79-year-old was told that the arm was amputated above the elbow.

Want to be able to play golf again

- Right now, I feel pretty calm about what happened. I know it is a disaster for myself but I will try to work it as best as it can, says the man.

He says that one goal in the future is to be able to play golf again.
