In the early hours of Saturday morning Australia's NT Police posted this epic media release on Facebook.

Fans of the page were understandably impressed.

The Northern Territory is known for crocodiles, but this particular yarn is Shakespearean in scope.

Man attacked by ferocious beast – fights back.

"Like a true Territorian..."

Man drinks beer to numb the pain.

The lucky man is Stephen Moreen, 20, from the Tiwi Islands, who was visiting relatives to shoot pig, geese and emu.

"[The croc did] the death roll," Moreen told the ABC. "Lucky for me when went underwater I saw him and poked his eye. He let go. Once he let go I ran for the bank."

Mr Moreen was taken by quad bike to the nearest outstation, then transported to Darwin Hospital by air ambulance. Quite the Friday night adventure!
