Woman Punches Vicious Crocodile in the Face To Save Twin Sister After It Tried to Drag Her Underwater

Western Journal

Georgia and Melissa Laurie are 28-year-old twins from Berkshire, England, who have a shared love of travel. They’ve been to many places together, and their most recent adventure took them to Mexico.

But while they were there, on June 6, they got a little more up-close-and-personal with one of the locals than they would have liked.

The BBC reported that the girls were swimming in a lagoon near Puerto Escondido — on a side trip led by a guide recommended by the hostel they were staying at — when Melissa disappeared.

“Georgia found her unresponsive and started to drag her back to the safety of a boat,” said their older sister, Hana Laurie.

“She dragged her back as the crocodile kept coming back for more — so she just started hitting it. She’d heard that with some animals, that’s what you’ve got to do,” she added. “Luckily, her super-bada** twin sister was there to punch it repeatedly — as it came back about three times — to try and save her.”

The twins both sustained injuries by the time they were able to get onto the boat after the reptile attacked, but obviously, Melissa’s condition was far worse. Not only had her wrist been broken, but she had lacerations, internal bleeding and water in her lungs.



When they were taken to the hospital, the doctors put them both on intravenous antibiotics, as they were concerned that the girls might pick something up from the water or the crocodile.

“Both Georgia and Melissa are on heavy doses of intravenous antibiotics, so we’re really hoping that if any infection does develop that they’ll be able to catch it really quickly,” Hana said.

“Thank goodness she’s had that training,” Hana added of Georgia’s diving experience. “She said her adrenaline kicked in and she knew what to do.”

“She is so brave and I think she’s still in shock. But I just had to tell her how proud I was of her.

“I’d have one less sister if I didn’t have such an excellent other sister.”

Because of the extent of her injuries, Melissa was placed in a medically induced coma and faces a long road to recovery. Her family, on the other side of the world, has been doing their best to stay updated, help as they can and make arrangements to get to Mexico themselves.

For her part, Hana has started a GoFundMe, as the family wasn’t initially sure that their insurance would cover the bills.

To add to the stress of the situation, the BBC reported that the family has since learned that the guide who ran the tour the girls were on was unlicensed and operating illegally. He has since reportedly disappeared.

Thankfully, Melissa has come out of the coma and is impressing everyone with her strength and stamina.



“It turns out Melissa is a little bit like Terminator or Wolverine or something, and has unbelievable strength and healing skills,” Hana shared on the fundraiser page on Monday.

“She’s managed to stand and do a short walk in the hospital and we’re confident she won’t need physio on the leg that was bitten. The sepsis is no issue anymore (not sure whether totally gone or just very manageable) and she’s got a big smile on her face.

“It seems like breathing and bruising and scarring will be things that improve with time, but the staff at the hospital in Mexico have done an absolutely amazing job looking after her.”

People have donated over $60,000 so far, a sum the family is incredibly grateful for. They also say that if there’s any extra, it will go toward helping the community where the twins were staying.

Texas House Speaker Issues Arrest Warrant for Dem Rep as He Flees to DC for Second Time

Republican Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan is seeking serious consequences for his Democratic colleagues who left the state to avoid key legislative work. Phelan has initiated a civil arrest warrant for Rep. Philip Cortez after Cortez flew back to Washington after briefly returning to Texas for talks regarding a Republican-supported election bill, according to The Washington Post. Speaker Dade Phelan signs civil arrest warrant for Texas House Democrat who returned to Washingtonhttps://t.co/waprrFq6tN — Midland Reporter-Telegram (@mwtnews) July 26, 2021 New: Here’s a copy of the civil arrest warrant for @CortezPhilip signed by @DadePhelan yesterday after he returned to DC. #txlege pic.twitter.com/oqbQtQ86vN — Brad Johnson (@bradj_TX) July 26, 2021 Two weeks ago, Texas House Democrats flew to D.C. in order to prevent a quorum necessary for the lawmaking body to debate and vote. The Democrats flew on a private charter jet maskless, and six of them later tested positive for coronavirus. Phelan said in a statement that Cortez “has irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of this chamber” and “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas,” according to The Texas Tribune, an online news outlet. But Cortez, whose district office is in San Antonio, insists that he flew back to Washington because the Republicans in Austin were being stubborn on the legislation — as if they were being the non-cooperative ones. “Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving the restrictive elections bill. After discussions with Republican leadership didn’t yield any substantive results, I have rejoined my Democratic colleagues in Washington D.C. to continue this fight on this front,” he wrote in a Twitter post published Sunday. Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving…

Restaurant Tapes Sign to Front Door: Proof of Being Unvaccinated Required for Entry

Western Journal

A restaurant in Huntington Beach, California, is trolling the fascists so hard, leftist Twitter is about to blow a gasket. As California businesses consider requiring proof of vaccination for entry, one rebellious eatery, Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, recently taped a sign to its door that reads “Proof of being unvaccinated required.” Underneath this warning is an image of a broken syringe and the declaration, “We have zero tolerance for treasonous, anti-American stupidity. Thank you for pondering.” Basilico’s has a history of thumbing its nose at California’s far-reaching coronavirus mandates. Last year, when the state shut down indoor dining, Basilico’s stayed open, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later, when the state issued a mask mandate, Basilico’s declared itself a mask-free zone and required patrons to remove their face coverings. The new sign is just the latest jab at the powers that be, and it is a hilarious one at that. It is clearly a gag, as it is impossible to prove one is not vaccinated, and an employee confirmed to the dismayed Times that the restaurant is not, in fact, checking anyone’s vaccination status. Of course, it was all too much for Twitter leftists, many of whom seem to be under the impression that the unvaccinated are keeling over and dying in the streets and that this novel inoculation is the only thing keeping the more enlightened Americans from doing so themselves. This restaurant down the street from me in Huntington Beach is asking that diners show proof they have **not** been vaccinated. Partisan politics has broken so many brains. Get me off this ride. pic.twitter.com/GSFVqNMiEX — Billy Binion (@billybinion) July 27, 2021 Good morning. Happy Tuesday. ICYMI “proof of being UNvaccinated” is actually a death certificate. And dead people don’t eat at Basilico’s Huntington Beach or any restaurants. Anti-American stupidity…
