WATCH: Crocodile attacks couple in backyard pool

- The terrifying moments a crocodile stalked and tried to attack a couple in a pool were caught on surveillance video in Zimbabwe.

The video shows the crocodile all the way to the right of the screen creeping up toward the pool slowly, then lunging at the couple.

A man jumps out of the pool as the crocodile speeds toward the woman, snapping at her in the pool. The woman is finally able to jump out of the pool.

The video posted on YouTube says it happened on Oct. 27 at a swimming pool at a private residence.

The user who posted the video said Zimbabwe remains in a drought, causing lake levels to drop and crocodiles to search for food elsewhere.

It appears the man and woman were mostly and luckily unharmed. Watch the video below (mobile users click here:)
