A 45-year-old trucker decided to take a shortcut at night. He attempted to drive on Cahill Crossing in Australia, but then the current became too rough. The man was forced to stop and turn on the high beam. In the glow of the headlights he saw 100 surprised crocodiles.

A situation like this could only happen in Australia. Daniel Kroeger had been driving a truck for almost ten years, but this was the first time he was in this area. The trucker was in a hurry to get to the nearest town in the evening, so he turned off the highway onto a road that he was told would take him a shorter route through a water crossing.

Daniel did find the river and the water crossing. But he didn't expect the river to flood considerably during the wet season. In the middle of the road the truck stalled and the man decided to see if he should go back.

This is when he realized that the movement of this truck had attracted all the crocodiles in the area. The reptiles gathered around the vehicle and looked at the driver in amazement.

Fortunately, Daniel was rescued but his truck wasn't pulled ashore until the next day.
