After their boat sank, two Australian fishermen survived in the jungle by fighting off a crocodile and drinking their own urine for four days.

The two men were boating on the Daly River in Australia’s Northern Territory when their boat hit something under the water. Their boat sank within seconds, not giving them a chance to activate their emergency beacon or grab their phones.

They were accidentally found by another boater.

Police Superintendent Shaun Gill told a press conference they were "extremely lucky" to be alive.

The police director pointed out that it’s always good to have a grab bag nearby when boating, since things can happen in mere seconds.
