A ter­ri­fy­ing encounter in Bihar, India, saw 35-year-old San­tosh Lohar awak­en to a snake bite. 

Act­ing on a vil­lage belief that bit­ing a snake back neu­tral­izes ven­om, Lohar grabbed the rep­tile and bit it twice, killing it.

Though risky, his swift response may have saved him until reach­ing a hos­pi­tal for antiven­om treatment.

Bihar suf­fers a high num­ber of snakebite deaths annu­al­ly due to its diverse snake pop­u­la­tion, includ­ing the “Big Four” — high­ly ven­omous species like the Indi­an Cobra. 

Their ven­om can be fatal if left untreat­ed. While Lohar’s method isn’t sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly valid, his quick think­ing proved cru­cial in a remote location.
