Mother and child die as baby poisoned through breast milk after snake bite

Mother and child die as baby poisoned through breast milk after snake biteAn Indian woman who was bitten by a snake in her sleep and unknowingly breastfed poisoned milk to her daughter has died along with the child, police said Friday. The 35-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh state did not realise she had been bitten when she woke and breastfed her daughter. The three-year-old girl and the mother fell ill on Thursday and both died before they could reach hospital, police inspector Vijay Singh told AFP. The family spotted the snake in another room but the creature escaped. A post-mortem is to be carried out but police have registered a case of accidental death, the officer added. India is home to some 300 snake species and 60 are highly venomous, including the Indian cobra, krait, Russell's viper and saw-scaled viper. India accounts for 46,000 of the 100,000 snakebite deaths around the world each year, according to a 2011 study by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

Shark bite victim previously attacked by bear and rattlesnake

Shark bite victim previously attacked by bear and rattlesnakeA Colorado man made it third time unlucky as he was attacked by a shark in Hawaii having already been mauled by a bear and bitten by a rattlesnake, all in less than four years, local media reported. Aged just 20-years-old, Dylan McWilliams was bodyboarding in the ocean off Kauai on Thursday, when what he believed to be a tiger shark between six and eight feet long took hold of his leg. The keen outdoorsman – who said he has worked as a survival training instructor – was able to swim around 30 yards back to shore, where a bystander called paramedics. "I didn't know if I lost half my leg or what," he said. McWilliams, of Grand Junction, western Colorado, received seven stitches in hospital – just months after he was given nine staples in his scalp following an altercation with a black bear at a Colorado summer camp last July.

It then dragged him, only dropping its grip as he punched it and poked it in the eye. "I guess I was just in the wrong spot at the wrong time," he said of the attack, which caught the attention of media outlets worldwide.

However, he told the Star Advertiser, the bite was not severe, and he was only ill for a couple of days. "My parents are grateful I'm still alive," he added.
