Boy killed by snake bite in Biliran
ORMOC CITY — A 7-year-old boy died after he was bitten by a poisonous snake in Barangay Magbangon, Cabucgayan town, Biliran on Thursday evening.
Jhon Maark Mollejon was on his way home from his grandmother’s house when a snake bit him on the right foot, said Lt. Teofilo Gervacio III, chief of the Cabucgayan Police Station.
When the boy arrived home, he told his mother Era Nogas that a snake bit him. The boy was told to wash his right foot to clean the wound.
But after an hour, his mother noticed that her son was no longer moving, prompting her to immediately bring the victim to the Rural Health Unit of Cabucgayan for medical treatment.
The boy did not make it alive.
