Collin Miller, 21, had inexplicably decided to break into a crocodile cage at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, South Africa, whilst out boozing.
Incredibly he escaped with his life after the three crocodiles released the blood-soaked tourist to fight over his torn off arm allowing a worker and another man to drag the tourist to safety.
The Zimbabwe Chronicle reported that the drama happened when the group reached a brewery that had a crocodile pond on the premises.
Eyewitnesses said Mr Miller, reputedly the worse for wear, went into the kitchen at the Victoria Falls River Brewing Company and jumped out a window.
He then climbed over a perimeter fence into the brewery's crocodile pond.
Three crocodiles were in the pool at the time when the wedding guest is said to have taken off his shirt and jumped in.
Terrified onlookers said the crocodiles went into a feeding frenzy with one reptile ripping off Collin’s arm and another clamping its jaws around his head and shaking.
Fortunately for him the crocodile that had his head was said to have let go and chased after the crocodile with Collin's arm allowing two brave rescuers to grab him.
The Victoria Falls River Brewing Company manufactures many different kinds of beer and also operates a restaurant on the same premises at Busy Island
Mr Miller of Lusaka, Zambia had been booked in to stay at a local lodge ahead of the wedding ceremony and is said to have gone on a drinking spree with friends.
He allegedly entered the restaurant kitchen without the knowledge of staff and climbed through a window and over a fence leading to the crocodile pool next door.
An eye witness said:"We were shocked when he just stormed into the kitchen despite a sign prohibiting members of the public and exited the window.
“He jumped into the pool and the crocodiles immediately pounced on him.
"He is lucky because alert guests quickly followed and rescued him but one of the crocs had already cut off his arm.
"The other crocodile nearly crushed his head but it turned away to chase after the one with the arm and that's how he was rescued".
Miller was rushed to Chinotimba Medical Centre before being airlifted to South Africa for further treatment.
Hwange District Medical Officer Dr Wisdom Kurauone confirmed the incident.
Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks) public relations manager described the incident as “unfortunate”.
They said: “We urge all foreign tourist to avoid taking unnecessary risks when dealing with animals.
