    An elderly woman took a drastic measure to save her granddaughter’s life after the young girl was bitten by a snake. In a folk remedy gone wrong, the woman applied spider venom to the snake bite wound, hoping that it would counteract the snake’s poison. Unfortunately, the girl started bleeding profusely as a result. Sin Chew Daily reported this alarming incident.

    The nine-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital, where doctors were able to save her just in time. However, they were shocked to discover both snake and spider venom in her body. Despite the scare, the girl was lucky as her internal organs were not damaged by the venom.

    Doctors emphasized the importance of seeking immediate medical help in the event of a snakebite. They advised victims to tie the affected limb a few centimeters away from the wound and to take a photo or remember the appearance of the snake for proper treatment. It is crucial not to attempt sucking the venom out, as it can lead to complications. This cautionary advice was given to avoid further mishaps due to similar folk remedies.

    On a different note, Taiwanese singer A-Mei couldn’t hold back her emotions during a tribute performance for the late Coco Lee at her recent concert in Singapore. The 50-year-old singer, known as the Queen of Mandopop, was seen wiping away tears as she delivered a heartfelt rendition of Lee’s classic song “I am Still Your Lover.” A-Mei, whose real name is Kulilay Amit, hails from the indigenous Puyuma tribe in Taiwan. The concert became an emotional moment as Lee passed away earlier this month after battling depression for several years.
