As God is my witness, I didn't think Crocodiles took vacations.

Charlie is a tough kid:

FTA:"He is now walking with an awkward gait, like he has a wooden leg, since he doesn't yet have full range of motion or strength. Though it is not guaranteed, running, jumping and playing soccer is expected to return"

Sounds like, with physical therapy, his abilities will come back after awhile.

Good life lesson! Maybe now he'll think twice before being eaten by a crocodile.

See, now that's a GoFundMe I could see giving to, kid gets attacked by large wild animal while on vacation requiring overseas medical care and 4 weeks of unexpected expenses for the family. Quite a different cause and effect from all those "vaccine-hesitant" ones we've been bombarded with lately.

Ok, the resort is picking up there medical, I wonder if they gifted the month of accomodations as well, seems likely since that's a minor expense to them unless they are at 100% occupancy.

"They (crocodiles) can exist at anytime, anyplace in those areas, so people need to always assume that they can be there,"

I went to that place a couple decades ago. The water ski guys would point out all the crocs as we were skiing. They didn't seem to care (guys or crocs)

She did a wrote-up here of the whole event for the public to read:

https://www.happyhourheadshot.com/cro​c​odile-attack-cancun-buhl

I was looking thru her Instagram and Facebook for more pics and info.
Unfortunately she's an anti-vaxxer, and they are full of anti-vax misinformation/anti-Fauci misinformation etc.

She has a pic of her sons standing in front of the White House when trump was president holding their noses and tagged it #F*ckTrump #Resist and she attended a BLM protest with them, so guess she's one of those hippie anti-vaxxers as opposed to the MAGA anti-vaxxers.

But I'm glad her son will be OK. He's very brave and strong. I have full confidence he will be able to do everything he did before and now he has a cool scar (and story to go along with it) for life.

I once spent an enjoyable week at the Club Mad Cancun for a, ahem, "special interest" gathering.  I didn't see any crocodiles but there was a very large number of bears around...

From the Mom's glowing quote, I expect they're doing a lot more than that.  When a 12 year old gets mauled by a 13 foot crocodile playing an innocent game of tag on your resort grounds, your choices are:

1.  Open the checkbook on day 1 and bend over backwards for the parents in the hopes they work with you on PR so you don't become "that scary gator resort," or
2.  Be cheap, don't cultivate good will, bask in your awful global press and watch your reputation trashed, then open your checkbook on day 180 when your insurers get the claim file and tell you that you're going to get mauled by a jury so you need to pony up.

Oh FFS.

I support legal immigration....my Dad and Grandparents came over legally in the 1940s.

What we have a problem with is illegal immigration...when people don't respect our borders.  If we have large numbers of people sneaking in via Canada, we would be against that as well.

Teens describe killer crocodile ordeal

Animal attacks friend and 'parades' his body in front of terrified survivors in Australian river

David Fickling in Sydney
Tue 23 Dec 2003 21.35 EST
Two Australian teenagers spent 22 hours in a tree above rising floodwaters after a crocodile killed their friend and "showed him off" to them as it held the body in its jaws.


The movie Black Water is based on this.

Being dismissive of your lame world view?  I meant it.

I went there years ago... there were always indigenous crocodiles in the lagoon.  Kid's parents were boneheads to let him in that water when there's a whole beach & pool complex.
