A 21 year old Australian man was attacked by a venomous Spider on Wednesday….. unfortunately his Penis.
Paramedics were brought to the scene, but even then the man was able to transport himself along with his painful member to the hospital
This incident happened when the victim was using the portable toilet. A redback Spider attacked his private member.
We wonder if he will show symptoms of Spiderman – (could not help myself, Sorry), Jokes apart, we wish him a speedy recovery.
According to the report by BBC, he has been discharged and now is in stable condition.
The BBC spoke to the owners of the property who confirmed that the man had been bitten on the penis as described in media reports.
According to BBC, a spokesperson for St George Hospital confirmed that a 21-year-old man was treated for a redback bite.
What’s a Redback Venomous Spider?
The redback spider is a species of venomous spider indigenous to Australia. It is a member of the cosmopolitan genus Latrodectus, the widow spiders.
Although there have been death recorded from redback bites in the past, but none have occurred since the development of anti-venom in 1956.
They are highly venomous and can cause sever pain, nausea and excessive sweating.
Only the female redback spider is the one who bites, which is screaming irony in this case.
The adult female redback has a body around 1 centimetre (0.4 in) long, with slender legs, the first pair of which are longer than the rest
