In a bizarre incident, a 60-year-old man died from a snake bite in Gujarat's Mahisagar district. No, this is not the unusual bit about the story.
What has us creeped out six ways to Sunday is the fact that the man bit the snake back and killed the reptile. According to the village head,
Parvat Gala Baria was standing near a spot where maize was being loaded from a field onto a truck. A snake slithered out and while others there ran away, he continued to stand claiming he had caught snakes earlier. He grabbed the snake which retaliated by biting him on the hands and face. However, Parvat bit back and killed the snake too.
According to reports, he was rushed to a hospital but the venom from the snake killed him by the end of the day.
