Melissa has since woken from her coma – and Georgia has now revealed the shocking details of how she jumped into the water to rescue her sister from the Mexican lagoon on Sunday.Georgia told The Sun : “It was trying to take her away. I punched it in the nose with both fists and it felt hard, like hitting a table, but it scared it off.”

After fending off the reptile, Georgia swam back to a tour boat cradling her sister as the croc lunged again and their friends called desperately for help.Georgia – a qualified diver – said the battle seemed to go on for a long time, but described how the adrenalin kicked in and kept her fighting.

She said: “I saw [Melissa] getting jerked around and I saw a croc’s head which was about two feet long. The croc swam off, but kept coming back. “That’s when it grabbed her by the leg and got her in a death roll. She went round and round and it was trying to drag her away.

“I was pounding it, and that’s when it grabbed me and bit my arm. I bashed it with the other hand and it let me go. That happened three times."The twins, from Sandhurst, Berkshire, had been visiting a spot about 10 miles from surf resort of Puerto Escondido.

A tour guide reportedly led them to an area known to be a "nesting ground" for crocodiles – and not the lagoon where tourists were usually taken.The extent of Melissa's injuries became clear when she was hauled into a boat. Georgia said her twin was coughing up blood and saying: "I’m drowning, I’m drowning".

She had been face down in the water, drifting in and out of consciousness.She suffered puncture wounds, a fractured wrist, lacerations on her stomach, and doctors were worried she would develop sepsis.She was taken to a hospital in Puerto Escondido, and Georgia was also treated for bites and gashes on her arms and legs.

Melissa has recorded a voice message, saying: “I am extremely grateful that I came out of this alive, and that I had Georgia fight my side for me. So I am very happy for that.”Since the attack, the family set up a crowdfunding page with a goal of reaching £35,000 to help pay for medical bills and fly the twins' parents to Mexico.

The pair had been volunteering and had booked a tour at Manialtepec Lagoon during a holiday break. Read more: Daily Mirror »
