Poisoned fangs

 

A 54 year old Thai woman in Nakorn Pathom has died after she was bitten by a centipede. 

 

It is called "takhap" in Thai. 

 

Chutikarn Worachote was bitten in the right foot on Saturday and was taken to hospital.

 

There she was given an injection and medication and sent home to her rented accommodation in Samphran district to recover. 

 

He son said she was in great pain and there was swelling in the area of the bite. But she had an evening meal and went to bed. 

 

On Sunday morning he went to rouse her but she was dead. He called the local police.

 

He wants to know if she died from complications of the centipede bite or some other reason. 

 

An autopsy is being undertaken at Sirirat Hospital. 

 

Thaivisa notes that bites from centipedes are not usually fatal in humans. However, the bigger ones can cause extreme pain that can last for several days.

Almost certainly that would have been a millipede. Firstly centipedes move too fast so she wouldn't be able to just bend down and pick it up. Secondly if she did pick up a centipede it would bite.

Come to think of it, it wasn't anywhere as big as someone posted a photo of one above, so there is a clear difference then.
