A female tourist has been rushed to hospital after she was bitten by snake at the Tiger Cave Temple in Krabi.

 

The 23 year old German tourist was taken to Krabi Hospital after she was been bitten by a snake on her right foot. The German tourist was still conscious whilst being treated at the scene and during her trip to hospital.

 

A friend of the German lady says, while they were walking inside the temple, her friend stepped on a pile of leaves. Suddenly she screamed as the snake bit her on the foot.

It is believed that the lady was bitten by Malayan pit viper

If you are bitten by this snake, do NOT wrap a tight band around the bite location. That will stop the venom from moving, from being diluted, and the tissue will suffer much more destruction.

Look at the picture 😱

Has anybody else seen the video of Wild Frank getting bitten by that Russell’s Viper that shows him cutting and stitching himself back up?

I disturbed a snake chasing a frog today, when I got to close it left the frog and went for me. I may not be young but Usain bolt would not been as fast as me running away.

My snake loves to disturb frogs in Thailand. In and out all the time.

Good chance the snake bite would be a 'dry bite' whereby the snake doesn't inject venom. It prefers to save it's venom for catching/killing food.
