Elderly Swede bitten by Fidel Castro’s crocodile!

An aquarium visitor ended up in hospital after being bitten by a crocodile, which once belonged to the late Cuban leader, Fidel Castro.

The incident happened on Tuesday, August 20, when a man, in his 70s, was visiting the Skansen Aquarium in Stockholm.

He put his arm “on the wrong side of the security glass” and got bitten, BBC writes.

Other visitors used napkins to stop the bleeding while waiting for an ambulance, which took the victim to hospital.

The crocodile responsible for attacking the elderly man is one of the two , which once belonged to Fidel Castro. The iconic leader gifted them both to Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Shatalov in the 1970s. He, in turn, passed Castro and Hillary on to Moscow’s zoo and from there they were sent to Stockholm.
