NAKHON SI THAMMARAT — A 64-year-old nun received 20 stitches in her leg after being bitten by a crocodile while collecting morning glory in a pond on Tuesday. 

White-robed mae chee Aumnuay Chuchuay waded into the knee-deep, 12 metre-wide pond at Wat Khanarn in tambon Thung Yai of Thung Yai district to collect pak boong for cooking stir-fried morning glory when the crocodile, about 1.5 metres long, bit her right calf, Thai Rath Online reported.  

After being able to compose herself, Mae Chee Aumnuay tried to run to the shore and shout for help, "but the crocodile followed me and tried to snap at my legs until I made it out of the water," she said.
