Australian fishermen rescued after sleeping on roof of stranded car ‘for days’ as crocodiles circled

two men stranded in the outback of Australia spent four days on top of their car after finding themselves surrounded by rising waters filled with circling crocodiles.

The men were on a fishing trip in the remote Kimberley region in north-west Australia when their four-by-four became stuck in a tidal bog.

Police said a close encounter with a crocodile prompted the men – along with their dog – to stay on the roof of the vehicle and keep a constant watch for encroaching predators.
