A Channel Nine reporter almost became global headline news herself after a crocodile came inches from taking a very large bite out of her during a live report.

Nine News’ Darwin reporter Zarisha Bradley was doing a piece over the weekend on a known croc in the area who locals have dubbed “Bonecruncher”.

Apparently, Bonecruncher’s habitat got destroyed in bushfires in late 2019 and Bradley had been sent out to do a story on the reptile now he’d resurfaced after going missing for the past eight months.

But as you’ll see from the terrifying footage below, the camera-shy Bonecruncher – who’s just short of two-metres long – was having none of the intrusive media.

Bradley later going appearing on Nine News to explain her new fatal experience: “I don’t think I’ve moved quicker in my life but I can assure you I was unharmed,” the very lucky 24-year-old reporter said.

“I’m OK. I got a little spooked but I’m OK and we have a great story with Bonecruncher.

“Oh my goodness, never ever smile at a crocodile!” she said.
