According to the Guardian, Waldron and the friend with her that evening, Leeann Mitchell, were in Queensland celebrating Mitchell's cancer survival when the croc struck. Mitchell tried to free Waldron but was unsuccessful. Purportedly, the area is known for having a large number of crocs. Three traps are now set in hopes of collecting the particular reptile that attacked Waldron that evening. "This was a tragedy, but it was avoidable," Warren Entsch, a member of Australia's parliament, says. "If you go in swimming at 10 o'clock at night, you're going to get consumed."
