The TV journalist, from Berlin, Germany, dove into 25 degrees Celsius water in Banco Chinchorro, Mexico to get up close and personal with seven fierce and deadly crocodiles.

He said: “Am I insane? A little bit. I like to call it a calculable risk”.

“That’s why I wanted to get in the water with them, to better understand their behaviour and show people that crocodiles aren’t bloodthirsty killers.”

The Daily Star recently reported how the shocking moment a man punched a crocodile that snatched his dog after it almost devoured him, was captured on camera.

Alister MacPhee, 37, was seen wading knee-deep in the water at the Bloomfield boat ramp, north of Port Douglas, Australia with his rottweiler dog at around 5.30pm (February 22).
