Video: Yikes! Mum is just in time to save baby child from huge centipede

A video that was featured on national TV showed the moment that a mother grabbed her little child as a large centipede approached. 

 

The mum was on the phone but noticed the "takhap" advancing rapidly around her baby who was playing innocently on the floor. 

 

 

Thai Rath reported that bites from such creatures can be severe and need hospital treatment. 

 

In this case a man who appeared to be the father managed to trap the creature and no harm was done. 

 

Thaivisa notes that complications from bites of especially large centipedes in Thailand can even cause death.

Questionable reporting you would have to say. It looks like grandma comes in and not so much traps it, as breaks the things spine, which could be considered harmful if you are the centipede. I wo

Looks like a security cam recording.   Sorry to disappoint you.

In cases like this I wonder why someone got enough time left to pick the phone and take a video instead of helping the kid.

I got bitten on the second toe by one of these. Night in hospital, ranked pain as 10. Still have problems (occasional stinging pain, often numb) 4 years later. Consulted a physician in Australia specialising in strange things, MRI, nothing.

What pain relief were you given?

Paracetamol to start with, then when the midnight nurse came around the second time, I told her and she gave me a shot, it worked but I dont know what it was.

Having not so long ago suffered from the  "bite" of  one of these creatures I can only have feelings of horror for an infant's uncomprehending agony if it were to be poisoned by one this size !

Yeah they are not pleasant. Mother in law spent 2 days in hospital after being bitten by a big one and suffering a bad reaction.
