This woman saved her identical twin from a crocodile by punching it over and over in the face

Jun 16th

A 28-year-old British woman literally rescued her identical sister from the jaws of death when the latter was attacked by a crocodile in Mexico last week.

Georgia and Mellisa Laurie were volunteering at animal sanctuaries south of Mexico City when they decided to join a riverboat tour of Manialtepc Lagoon.

The guide, who turned out to be an unlicensed dude looking to score some cash through tours, apparently didn't realize the area was a crocodile nesting site.

As soon as Melissa got into the water, she was pulled under by a 10-foot croc that was just doing what crocs do.

Georgia wasn't about to lose her twin, so she dove in after her sis and started punching the crocodile right in the face while pulling Melissa to safety.

"It was fight or flight," said Georgia, "and you have to fight for the people you love."

Georgia is certified in scuba rescue diving, which was an added bonus for her sister.

Both women immediately went to the hospital. While Georgia only had wounds on her hand, Melissa had to be placed in an induced coma because of severe injuries to her face, torso, and leg.

Melissa is reportedly recovering, but since she had several organs punctured, even being able to digest food normally is going to be a process.

Kudos to this brave sis!
