Crocodile Attacks Surfers In Costa Rica

In a rare occurrence, a crocodile attacked a Spanish couple in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The Spaniards were surfing Playa Tamarindo when a 7-foot American crocodile came after them. A local surf instructor, Luis Sequeria, came to the rescue and scared the reptile off—but not before the croc tore into the Spanish guy with his claws and jaws. “In Tamarindo we don’t have lifeguards watching over people,” he said. “Sometimes it’s up to the locals to step up,” said Sequeria after the incident. The last recorded crocodile attack in Costa Rica happened in 2008.
