Phil Aspinall was walking his dog through some mangroves in the Pine River, not far from Weipa, when at approximately 3:00 pm he accidentally stepped onto the tail of a 2 meter (6.5 foot) saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus). The crocodile subsequently swung around in defense and latched onto Aspinall's right buttock. He managed to escape the crocodile's jaws with roughly half a dozen puncture wounds to the region.
