A friend of mine got bitten by a so called night adder when he was leaving the blind after a hunt, it was almost dark and he was going as 4th person in the group. he felt a little sting in his ancle and did see a small adder/snak disapear inn the gras. 1 hour later he got this amssive pain and the leg swalled up and get blue, the only medic near by was a dentist with bush experience, he told us to go to hospital as soon as possible. We drove to the best hospital in Pretoria a 2 hour drive from the hunting area. He got in the emergency reseption and was taken really good care of, by the nurses and doctores. He spend 1 week at the hospital and get all the best treatment a man can get, thank god for a solid travelinsurance. He got better and when he got back home he did train hes leg for about 6 month, and did never recover complety, this happend in 2006. He said, he wasn`t afraid for dying but for loosing his leg. If he didn`t get to the hospital as fast as he did, they had to amputate the leg.
