Man uses rum to soothe snakebite on his willy!June 11th, 2008 - 2:46 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 11 (ANI): The mystery man who was bitten on the penis by a deadly snake has come forward to describe his unusual remedy- a soothing cold can of rum and coke.
Cairns carpenter Daryl Zutt was bitten on the unfortunate area by a brown snake while relieving himself near Laura, 300km northwest of Cairns on April 27.
I thought I was gone. I thought, Maybe, this is it. Maybe, Im gonna cark it,” The Cairns Post quoted him as saying.
Zutt and his mates were returning from a pig-hunting and fishing trip near Musgrave Station.
“I squatted down I reckon I mustve nearly sat on his head. As soon as I felt it, I yelled. It really hurt. When it happened, I knew in the back of my mind it was a snake. I seen him coming out from between my legs,” he said.
Zutt said that he tried to remain calm as he inspected the damage.
“He got me about halfway down. I saw fang marks and a bit of blood come out,” he said.
While the snake slithered under a rock, the shocked Cairns carpenter iced the affected area with a rum can while he rang his mother to say his final farewell.
Zutt then alerted his mate and they drove to Lakeland to seek medical help.
His friend called triple-0 to advise authorities of the bite and when they arrived at Lakeland, emergency services volunteers were waiting to help him.
“I was nauseous and had pains in the stomach. I couldnt talk properly.
I was tongue-tied, Zutt said.
A paramedic treated Zutt and took him to Cooktown Hospital.
After a series of blood and urine tests, which confirmed he was not envenomated, he was discharged. (ANI)
