LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2012) - Sky News has brought the rather nerve-racking - albeit very happy - news that a young man survived a life-threatening snake bite!
One unfortunate Australian teenager had a narrow escape after being bitten by the world's most venomous snake. The 17-year-old walked into a hospital in the small town of Kurri Kurri, north of Sydney, on Wednesday afternoon with a bite to his left hand that could have proved fatal. The species is also so known as 'the fierce snake' due to the strength of its venom - a single drop is enough to kill 100 adult men! The boy survived thanks, in part, to the anti-venom distributed on his arrival.
Moving on to a far safer way to play with snakes perhaps, we welcome Sky's other Snake Story: the Sky Vegas online casino game, Snakes and Ladders.
