The sister of a British woman who was attacked by a crocodile in a Mexican lagoon earlier this month has spoken to the BBC about their ordeal.

The 28-year-old twins were swimming when Melissa Laurie was dragged underwater by the reptile.

Her sister, Georgia, fought off the crocodile by repeatedly “beating it on its snout”.

But she says she doesn’t think of herself as a hero, describing the whole incident as “surreal” and an “out of body experience”.
