NEWS: Children in Ohio Creek Have Close Encounter with a Crocodile

The phrase “you don’t see that every day” rang frighteningly true for a group of children swimming in an Ohio creek last week, when it was discovered they were sharing the water with a seven-and-a-half-foot crocodile! The group of 16 kids were in a creek in Preble County as part of a weekly activity related to nature. They had just finished a lesson about how fish escape predators lurking in the shadows, when they suddenly encountered the foreign reptilian predator themselves.
