The worst thing that can ever happen to any human is to be bitten by a snake… and it appears this season, reptiles may be much probably due to the cold in January. A pregnant woman has been bitten by a snake inside her WC, in the northern part of Nigeria.
According to the brother of the victims @Zun_Noorayne who expresses pains and sadness narrating the story on his social media handle.
“Today we lost my brother’s wife who was 8 months pregnant due to a snake bite as she went to ease herself in the early morning hours
Sadly our hospitals couldn’t be of help
As some of the hospitals claim that they don’t keep anti-venom because they hardly use it and it expires, can you imagine the stupidity?
As big as 44 hospital in Kaduna, they said, they had nothing to give her when she was rushed there…
The express road in Kaduna that leads to the NNPC clinic at Sabo, is in poor condition that leads to the delay and waste of time before they get there…
Our leaders only loot money for their personal needs.
But the masses mean nothing to them
Lastly, if my voice could be heard, I’d wish we get more awareness of the dangers surrounding us and the right first aid in any situation
Also, awareness as to how to differentiate snake bite from scorpion and other animals bite
When the snake bit her, she didn’t know it was a snake bite, so she proceeded, performed ablution, prayed subhi, on saying her adhkar, the place started to swell up and she started having some strange pains, that was when she called her husband (my brother) who left her just last night
She was then rushed to different hospitals which were all giving helpless excuses
By the time they got to the NNPC clinic, she could barely breathe and she was telling her husband over the phone “I can’t see and I can’t hear, La ilaga illallah Muhammadur rasulullah…”
And from then she was quiet he kept saying “Hello! Hello!” But no response at that point he knew it was too late.
She left behind a 2-year-old boy, Muhammad whom she celebrated his birthday together with the dad just two days ago
May Allah forgive her shortcomings and may He protect us, Ameen.
