SANDAKAN: A boy cheated death as he fought a crocodile attack in the sea near his home at Kampung Batu Putih here Tuesday night. 

It was learnt that the nine-year-old and his friend who lived in a water village were swimming from their neighbour's house to go home.

The boy's father, Ubing Markum, said he was attacked by the reptile during high tide at around 1pm. 

The boy sustained injuries to his right hand, shoulder and head and was later brought to a private clinic for treatment where he was reported to be in stable condition.
