Suspected King Brown snake bite lands man in hospital
A WARWICK man was last night airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital following a suspected King Brown snake bite.
The 25 year old was flown in the RACQ CareFlight helicopter from Warwick Hospital after he was bitten while working on a property north west of Warwick.
Incredibly the man was able to capture the snake despite being bitten.
"The man presented the snake to us in a bag which will help medical teams confirm whether it was a King Brown snake and determine the appropriate course of treatment," RACQ CareFlight aircrewman Brian Guthrie said.
"He travelled in a stable condition."
Further testing found no traces of venom with the man discharged from hospital soon after.
