A man has lost some of his toes in a crocodile attack in a Northern Territory river.

The 28-year-man was on the Adelaide River near Darwin when he was attacked about 6pm on Tuesday.

“(He) received amputated and partially amputated toes as a result of a crocodile attack,” a spokesperson for St John Ambulance said.

The man was treated at the Adelaide River Clinic before being taken to Royal Darwin Hospital in a stable condition.

It’s unknown why he entered the croc-infested waters, with a St John Ambulance spokesman telling the ABC that, “obviously a croc has got hold of his foot somewhere”.

It comes after two soldiers were injured after being mauled by a crocodile in a separate incident in Queensland’s far north this month.
