PRACHINBURI — A French woman was bitten by a crocodile Sunday afternoon while hiking at Khao Yai National Park.

Benetulier Lesuffleur, 46, was traveling with her husband along Haew Suwat Waterfall – Pha Kluay Mai trail when they spotted a crocodile sunbathing in a pond and attempted to take a picture with it.

The couple crouched near the reptile to take a selfie before the wife fell over, which startled the crocodile, resulting in it biting into her right thigh.



Lesuffleur was sent to a hospital in Prachinburi province and is now safe.

According to the national park chief Kanchit Srinoppawan, the tourists went off trail and ignored a sign warning about crocodiles.
