A young woman who was bitten by a snake has impressed the public in China after catching the reptile with her bare hands before taking it with her to the hospital.
She held the slithering animal around her wrist and calmly went to the ER so the medics could identify it, according to a hospital in eastern China’s Zhejiang Province.
Huang Shengqiang, the ER doctor who treated the woman, said the snake was a non-venomous red-banded snake.
Dr Huang said there was no swelling around the patient’s wound, so he gave her simple treatment.
Pictures released by China’s Pujiang Hospital show the woman calmly filling out a registration form while grabbing the snake with her thumb and fingers.
She had been bit by the reptile.
