SNAKE BITE AT BATHERS BEACH

Posted in fremantle, health, snakes by freoview on March 16, 2015

Things became quite dramatic at Fremantle’s J Shed studio at Bathers Beach on Friday afternoon when a man stumbled in at Jenny Dawson and Peter Zuvela saying he had been bitten by a snake. I have seen a few snakes in the coastal dunes of Perth but never one at Bathers Beach yet, so this is a call to stay alert for those who visit the inner city beach.

The worrying thing is that the ambulance officers who attended told Jenny and Peter that they do not carry anti-venom with them so the long trip to the new Fiona Stanley hospital during peak hour was a serious threat to the snakebite victim’s health.
