Krait Bite in India

An Indian woman was bitten by a 6-foot krait, but rather than seeking immediate treatment, apparently relied on local snake charmers' superstitions. She spent an hour trying to capture the snake, being bitten several more times in the process, in hopes that the snake could be made to remove the venom from her body. She died soon after arriving at a local hospital. (News source.)
