Who is Nehemias Chipada ?

A tourist in the Philippines was attacked by a crocodile after mistaking it for a plastic model and getting into his pool to pose for selfies.

Nehemias Chipada saw what she thought was just a realistic model of one of the predators while visiting the Amaya View amusement park on her birthday in the city of Cagayan de Oro.

The 68-year-old then posed for photos, holding his phone in one hand and the other hanging from his waist.

Family

But with his family watching, the photoshoot took a wild turn as the 12-foot-long alligator lunged on his arm and dragged him into the water.

Dramatic images show Nehemiah crying out for help as the huge reptile sank its teeth into his left arm.

He managed to escape and flee from the beast with his limbs still intact before he was treated and taken to the hospital.

Incident

After the incident, Nehemiah, who survived the crocodile attack, and her family blamed the amusement park for not putting up signs warning them to stay away from the deadly reptile.

Nehemias ‘daughter Mercy Joy Chipada said:’ There were no signs warning us not to enter the compound. Because if there was, we would never have gone there. ‘

Resort staff tightly wrapped handkerchiefs around Nehemias’ arms and hands to stop the bleeding, after which he was sent to Northern Mindanao Medical Center for treatment.

Examinations found that he had suffered broken bones and eight wounds requiring stitches to his left arm and thigh.

A three-inch crocodile tusk had also lodged in his flesh from the force of the bite. Multiple surgeries were needed to repair his broken bones.

Viewer Rogelio Pamisa Antiga who filmed the video said: ‘I was looking at the beautiful scenery around the park when the incident happened. I heard people yelling for help and saw the crocodile mistreating the old man. I thought I’d bite his arm off.

“ I wanted to help him, but he was scared and didn’t know how to deal with a crocodile attack. ”

The amusement park agreed to bear the costs of Nehemias’ treatment, but denied they were negligent in warning tourists about the dangerous animals.

Amaya View COO Candy Unabia said: ‘We deny the accusation that we have been negligent.

‘They said they thought the crocodile was artificial too, but that area is actually restricted. There are constant signs and reminders from our tour guides’.
