Man bit­ten by snake

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE RACQ CQ Res­cue air­lifted a man who was bit­ten by a brown snake in the Whit­sun­days on March 16. The 28-year-old was bit­ten on the leg as he was get­ting out of his car. He drove him­self to Proser­pine Hospi­tal for treat­ment, where a pres­sure im­mo­bil­i­sa­tion ban­dage was ap­plied to stop the risk of venom en­ter­ing his blood­stream.

RACQ CQ Res­cue trans­ported the man in a sta­ble con­di­tion to Mackay Base Hospi­tal for fur­ther ob­ser­va­tion and treat­ment, ar­riv­ing at 11pm.
