A British student left with her 'foot dangling loose' after being savaged by a 10ft crocodile in Zambia has told of how her 'mind went into overdrive' as she battled the beast.
Amelie Osborn-Smith, 18, was enjoying a day of white water rafting on the Zambezi Rover, close to Victoria Falls, when she was attacked by the huge crocodile despite guides telling her the river was safe to swim in. She has since suffered nightmares and flashbacks to the horrific incident in which she was dragged into a death roll.
The teen's father, former Army Major Brent Osborn-Smith, previously said she had been resting her leg over the side of the boat when the crocodile clamped its jaws around her calf and dragged her under the water. Speaking from her bed at the Medland Hospital in Zambia, Amelie revealed instinct took over and her mind went into 'overdrive' as she fought for her life.
