Brit, 18, savaged by crocodile in Zambia on how she escaped monster's jaws.

A BRIT teen left fighting for life after a monster crocodile attacked her in Zambia has revealed how instinct took over and she went into “overdrive” to fight off the beast and survive.

Amelie Osborn-Smith, 18, has been plagued by nightmares and flashbacks after the 10ft croc attacked her and dragged her into a death roll as she swam with pals in the mighty Zambezi river near the world-famous Victoria Falls.

Speaking from her hospital bed for the first time since the attack she said: “You don’t really think in that situation.

“People say you see your life flash before your eyes, but you don’t.

“You just think, ‘How do I get out of this situation’.

“Your mind just goes into overdrive and you just think about how to get out.

“I was just very, very lucky.”
