Bit­ten by snake

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

A 12-YEAR-OLD boy was bit­ten by what was be­lieved to be a deadly brown snake yes­ter­day.

A West­pac Res­cue He­li­copter landed in the carpark near the Stock­ton break­wall in New­cas­tle to sta­bilise the boy and take him to John Hunter Hos­pi­tal. A spokesman for the hos­pi­tal said the boy is in a se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion.

The boy was bit­ten on the foot and was un­con­scious when paramedics ar­rived.
