At first everything seemed like another sober evening in Cancun. The Buhl family from the American city of Philadelphia went on vacation to Mexico in June. Charlie Bull (12) was playing hide and seek with the other children when the horror attack took place. Charlie’s mother, Jennifer Bull, 50, says in a post Blog On your company’s website.
It all started with a game on the evening of June 18: a 12-year-old boy hid on the steps leading to a pool with a friend.
What the 12-year-old boy did not know: his life was in danger. The three-meter-long crocodile was waiting for prey. The boy arrived just in time. The animal jumped out of the water and dragged Charlie by the leg. Young people have no chance. “There was nothing I could do. It was so strong,” the boy said of the attack on “Good Morning America.”
Hotel guests beat the animals
The crocodile bite initially did not hurt at all. “It was like someone was holding your leg and squeezing it tightly with your hands.” It almost felt like the teeth were stopping the blood. He had no pain after the attack because he had teeth in his leg.
Hotel guests and staff rushed to the rescue after hearing the boy’s screams. Some liked the boy, others worked the crocodile. Beat the beast. With success. The reptile Charlie left the grass. He was alive, but his leg was deeply injured – he was badly injured.
He almost lost his leg
He was immediately taken to the hospital and treated. Several activities followed. Doctors tried to save the leg and prevent it from being amputated. The Buhl family had to extend their vacation by four weeks. The boy was treated to such an extent. The 12-year-old boy is currently recovering. He can walk again.
According to Charlie’s mother, the hotel knew of crocodiles in the pond. There are no signs of danger yet. That has changed since then. The hotel responded. Hospital costs were also offset.
This is not the first crocodile attack in Mexico. A few days before the attack on Charlie Bull, the British Melissa L.A. * (28) was attacked by a crocodile while swimming in Porto Escondido. His twin sister was able to save the 28-year-old. (jmh)
