A man was saved from being attacked by a crocodile when it was scared off by his wife who started swearing in shock due to her latah condition.
Wan Sahari Wan Ateng, 47, and his wife Saliah Jini, 47, were picking prawns out of their net on a raft at Sungai Paruh, Kuching, when a 6.5m-long crocodile grabbed his arm. Wan Sahari said the sudden attack shocked his wife who then started to swear loudly as she would normally do due to the latah condition.
He said his wife's repeated swearing scared off the animal. “I am very grateful to my wife's condition. Her condition helped save me from certain death,” he said.
Latah is a condition where, triggered by reflex, victims involuntarily go into hysterics with repetitive speech or movements.
