    Australia - Darwin kite surfer fights off crocodile that attacked again and again

    29-year-old Darwin, Australia kite surfer Chris Keeping became entangled in his kite off the beach at Casuarina Coastal Reserve, Saturday, and was attacked by a 2.5m (8ft) saltwater crocodile.

    Chris was paralysed with shock as it grabbed his shoulder and shook him around, but it couldn't pull him under and drown him as he was still attached to his kite. Eventually, the croc came to a standstill, still with Chris in its mouth. Chris poked it in the eye and made a dash for the shore as it dropped him.

    The croc pursued him though, returning again and again as Chris hit out with his board. He finally managed to beat it off and escape with his life and some injuries that tell their own tale.

    Not many people can say they fought a croc and won
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
