Croc shreds man's testes but tomatoes save the day
Croc shreds man's testes but tomatoes save the day - We know that tomatoes contain cancer-fighting lycopenes, but the red fruit saved Jonah Maturure's life in a much more direct way. The tenacious Zimbabwean was wading across a crocodile-infested river to sell produce on the other side when he was attacked by one of the ferocious reptiles. During the scuffle, Maturure dropped his box of tomatoes, which distracted the croc and allowed him to escape. It takes balls for a 70-year-old (did we forget to mention his age?!) to attempt such a dangerous feat, but the poor guy lost his own: The crocodile tore his "testicles into shreds." We're glad he lived through the ordeal, though @RealFLYTYE feels we've been left hanging, tweeting, "No twitpic?"
