 Pete Meredith, Ben Stookesberry, Chris Korbulic, Mick Burns, and Matt Wright take a moment with one of the crocodiles captured in the pen.
It was an accident that rocked the kayaking world: A massive Nile crocodile attacked renowned kayaker Hendri Coetzee, while American kayakers Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic watched helplessly. Now, the two survivors return to the scene of the tragedy, hoping to track down and capture the deadly predator. Joining forces with a team of crocodile experts, including Australian croc wrangler Matt Wright, they battle high water and erratic weather as they search for signs of crocs.
