British tourists injured in Mexico crocodile attack

Melissa is now in an induced coma in hospital while Georgia also suffered bite wounds, their parents said.

"But then, they have had to fix her stomach and organs so it's going to be a littlewhile until she's going to be able to eat and ingest food". She recognised Georgia. That is really, really good news.

Meanwhile, Georgia, who punched the crocodile, has been discharged from hospital.

Lalo took me to the site where the attack happened and explained that properly-trained boatmen like him are anxious that the irresponsible actions of a rogue guide could harm their business.

Their mother Sue said: 'Melissa is off the intubation.

"It wasn't until the nurse opened my fist to clean my hand that I realised that it had been slashed too", Georgia said.

"When they told me her condition was deteriorating, I had to let the family know". "Starting a fight and punching someone is not really my sister's style, but clearly if you're a crocodile, the rules don't apply".

Local wildlife experts believe the sisters may have been attacked by a female crocodile protecting her eggs.

Such was the adrenaline pumping around Georgia's body, she didn't realise the extent of her own injuries until they reached a private hospital in the town.

A GoFundMe page set up by Hana to raise money to help cover medical costs for the twins has raised almost £38,000.

Georgia is doing "much better" but is "really frightened" and is finding it "really difficult" seeing Melissa in a coma, Hana said.

The pair's elder sister, Hana Laurie, 33, said her sister had developed sepsis.

But Melissa must overcome her physical injuries and both women will need time to deal with the emotional and mental fallout of what they have been through.

"Mel is very bruised, has two black eyes and deep cuts to her face, torso and leg where the crocodile has bitten and scratched her. We wait to see how she reacts and recovers over the coming days".

But following the ordeal, their parents are now considering flying out to Mexico to bring them home.

"People's generosity has not gone unnoticed but we want to make sure that we do the right thing".

Richie, who is a backpacker organising unlicensed tours to fund his travelling, agreed to take the twins after meeting them at a hostel in Puerto Escondido, a popular surfing resort.

Georgia fought off the crocodile to save Melissa's life.

Melissa and Georgia Laurie, 28, have been hospitalized following the incident.

Georgia heard her sister's cry for help, then found her floating face down on the surface. "She kept punching it in the head".
