As Jackson Scott crouched in the dark at a remote Tasmanian farm, a highly venomous tiger snake bit his testicle, The Sun reported Thursday.
The reptile sunk its fangs into Jackson Scott’s testicle as he squatted in the dark.
But when he begged best mate Roddy Andrews to suck the venom out, his pal REFUSED.
Instead he drove Jackson on a 40-minute life-or-death dash to Hobart, Tasmania, where doctors gave him an antidote to the deadly tiger snake poison.
“I went into the garden at four in the morning after a night in the pub to save flushing the toilet, because water is precious in the outback,” said Jackson, 29, from Glasgow in Scotland. “Just as I finished … it bit me.”
In a panic, he stumbled to his best friend’s room for help and was driven to a hospital in Hobart, where medics gave him antivenom.
While Scott later joked about his brush with death, he praised the doctors and nurses for not teasing him, saying they were “very professional.”
A similar incident made headlines across Australia in 2008 when a deadly brown snake bit a tourist’s penis while he made a roadside restroom stop in a remote area northwest of Cairns, Queensland. He also survived after being rushed to hospital.
