CAPE York stockman David George has spent seven nights up a tree in a crocodile-infested swamp, bleeding and with little food - and lived to tell the tale.
"Every night I was stalked by two crocs who would sit at the bottom of the tree staring up at me," Mr George recalled yesterday.
"All I could see was two sets of red eyes below me and all night I had to listen to a big bull croc bellowing a bit further out.
"I'd yell out at them, 'I'm not falling out of this tree for you bastards'."
