2011-09-02 21:01

Sydney - Early morning swimmers at a public pool in the far-north Australian city of Darwin discovered they were doing laps alongside a crocodile, the NT News reported on Friday.

The 40cm freshwater crocodile was liberated by lifeguard Time Dupe, who speculated that pranksters had popped the croc in the pool the night before.

A witness told the Northern Territory newspaper, "I thought the croc had a good stroke and was going to challenge it to a race".
