Townsville Bulletin - - News -

A DAR­ING man made sure paramedics had all the in­for­ma­tion they needed to treat his snake bite yes­ter­day when he gripped on to the scaly cul­prit un­til po­lice ar­rived. An am­bu­lance spokesman said the man, in his 50s, was bit­ten on the hand near a busi­ness in Ing­ham Rd just be­fore 2pm and was treated on scene. But paramedics got more than they bar­gained for, find­ing the snake re­spon­si­ble had been put in a pil­low case af­ter the in­jured man ini­tially held on to it by the head af­ter the at­tack.
