An Ethiopian woman found herself lucky to escape alive
after being bitten by one the world’s deadliest snakes, a
viper as she slept. According to reports, she did not seek
medical attention, however just three days later, was left
fighting for breath after her throat and tongue swelled up
rapidly.

In a case that has baffled doctors, the 20-year-old was
rushed to hospital where she was eventually told she had
caught a bacterial infection from the snake’s mouth.
The unnamed woman, from Ethiopia, was diagnosed with
Ludwig’s angina, which makes the sufferer feel like they
are being choked or strangled.

It is highly unusual following a snake bite, according to an
article published in BMJ Case Reports.

Ignorance and poverty are the worst things that could befall anyone alive.

How could you not treat a snake bite?
