Yeah, must have been his tiger blood...
I can't even imagine what sort of force it would take to hold on to the mangroves with a croc dragging you into the creek. He must have been detirmined that it wasn't his time to go.
As for being a hero? More like a fool who ignored local knowledge of the creek being a known croc habitat, fishing alone in a known croc habitat and being lucky enough that someone else wandered by in time to help him.
Hero - NO.

Fool - Definately

Lucky? - Beyond belief!

Well if I had made the topic something along these lines ..."Dumb Arsed Fool gets half eaten by Croc" I am sure the PC crowd would come at me more than usual.
