NT fishermen find ‘wanted fugitive’ hiding in mangove trees above croc-infested waters

You’ve probably heard a few good fishing tales before, but this one is unlike any other.

A Sunday outing by two crab fishermen in Darwin took a very odd turn when they discovered a man perching in mangroves, completely naked and very muddy.

The 40-year-old man had been on the run for days after allegedly cutting off his ankle bracelet and evading police.

But then he found himself trapped in a crocodile-infested creek near East Point and had to eat snails to survive.

Cam Faust and Kevin Joiner were checking their crab pots when they heard the man calling out for help.

“Man, what you been doing?” one fisherman asks the naked escapee.
