Moses, the teenage son of the great chief, was seriously injured while crossing a river.

The great chief’s son was nearly killed by a crocodile just a few days ago.

Fifteen-year-old Moses and two friends were crossing a river when he was abruptly and viciously attacked by a crocodile, Nadia Hattingh writes. After the initial attack he managed to get away briefly.

But then, as he and his friends tried to scramble up the steep river bank to escape, the crocodile caught his leg and dragged him back into the water.

By the grace of God, a neighbour heard the screams and came running with a spear.
