The Australian couple was enjoying their vacation in a pool at the villa in Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe when the romantic moment almost turned deadly after a 6.5ft crocodile crept slowly up towards the pool, then lunged at them.
The animal attacked the woman, as the man instantly jumped out of the water to safety, leaving his girlfriend behind to fight it off alone.
The woman managed to get to the other edge of the pool but as she reached it, seemingly making it to safety, the particularly aggressive beast raced towards her again, grabbing her arms and back.
Luckily, the woman escaped with no serious injuries, only sustaining some cuts to her back and arm. The crocodile was taken away by authorities sometime later.
