Wind Blows Man’s Beloved Hat Into Muddy River, Huge Crocodile Swallows It Whole

Damian Duffy is a nature and adventure enthusiast and photographer. He also really loves his hat. Unfortunately, a huge crocodile got in the way of that love.

Doesn’t everybody have that epic love experience in common — where a giant reptile gets in between you and your heart’s desire?

OK, maybe not.

In the video below, Damian was feeding some crocodiles on the Adelaide River, in the Northern Territory of Australia. He had been wearing his Akubra hat, one that was only 3 weeks old and practically brand-new.

Things were going smoothly for Damian until a big gust of wind blew past him, taking his hat with it. Damian could only watch as the hat flew off his head into the muddy, crocodile-infested water of the river.

He probably considered jumping in after it; he did love his hat, after all.

Unfortunately, any ideas of bravery were shot down the moment a huge crocodile started swimming right toward the hat.

You can hear Damian yelling at the reptile, trying to get him to swim somewhere else, but the crocodile had his eyes fixed on the hat!
