A show in Thailand’s Nakhon Sawan quickly became one of horror when a keeper’s hand was bitten in half by a crocodile.

Trainer Sumet Thongkhammuan was entertaining crowds at the Bung Boraphet ‘Show of Crocodiles’ on New Years Eve when the crocodile snapped its mouth shut with the keeper’s hand inside of it, according to the Daily Mail.

Thongkhammuan survives the bite when he snatches it away from the crocodile but then hold it up with his hand hanging loosely in the air.

The attack in Thailand comes a month after an Egyptian lion tamer was killed during a circus performance in Alexandria, northern Egypt by a lion weighing 200kg.
