When Barack Obama arrives in Australia’s Northern Territory Thursday, the region’s chief minister Paul Henderson will greet and hand the American president a policy that insures him against a crocodile attack.

While Henderson promises every precaution will be taken to keep Obama away from the giant reptiles, which the Northern Territory is famous for, if one does happen to penetrate the security detail and take out the Commander in Chief, Obama’s family will be eligible for a $50,000 payout.

“For Michelle and the kids they can be comforted if a terrible event did occur then $50,000 would be payed out by [Territory Insurance Office] to help support them,” Henderson explained.
