Last year BBC reported Mohammed Salmodin’s, a farmer from Nepal, near-death experience. The native Nepali farmer was bitten by a common cobra, whose venom is poisonous. Salmodin returned home to get a torch after he had been bitten. The man started biting back the deadly snake until its last breath was drawn. Even though the slithering menace died, the farmer survived.
Salmodin told the media that a snake charmer once advised him that if he ever got bitten by a snake, he should bite back until the snake dies. After he killed the snake, he returned home to his daily routine. His family and friends managed to convince him to go to the hospital. After he was released, it became clear the authorities won’t charge him for the murder since the common cobra isn’t an endangered species in Nepal.
Reportedly, there are numerous types of snakes in Nepal, most of which are actually deadly. Each year 20,000 people are bitten by snakes in the South Asian country and around 1,000 die from the bites. However, Salmodin lived to tell his story thanks to the unnamed snake charmer’s advice.
