A Saudi woman was bitten by a poisonous snake while walking back home in her village in the Gulf Kingdom but survived after having treatment at hospital.
Three weeks later, she was bitten by a wasp and died.
The 26-year-old woman was returning home from a shop in her village nearly 130km from the southwestern town of Najran, when she was bitten by the snake.
She was rushed to hospital where she was treated with antibiotics and discharged a few days later after she fully recovered, Sabq newspaper said.
Three weeks later, the woman was bitten by a wasp and was taken to the same hospital, but she died just as she was admitted, it said.
Shades of “Final Destination”
I have never heard of anyone getting ‘bitten’ by a wasp
More likely she was stung by the wasp.
What kind of wasps and hornets do they have over there?
Why didn’t her male escort help her with the wasp?
And if she didn’t have a male escort why wasn;t she stoned to death posthumously?
"Geez - I HATE when that happens ..."
Our rates are very high these days, and alas not everyone girl afford them.
Probably anaphylactic shock, something that happens to some victims of wasp and bee stings. Indeed, I knew a man to whom the same thing happened. It was in Missouri.
She dishonored the family by being the victim of a snake. The wasp (if that’s what it was) must have been a gift from the father, brothers, or husband.
Years ago, when I was lifeguarding, a bumble bee tangled itself in my hair and started stinging me on the head. As the pool manager worked to get the bee out, it bit him repeatedly.
My dad lives in a neighborhood where pit bulls are known to run free, so when he walks his dog he carries a can of wasp spray with him. Hasn’t had to use it yet.
The same thing happened to me when I was about ten. I was stung by a honey bee, I think, and broke out in huge hives within minutes. My mom put me in the bathtub and put cold water on me, but that did not help.
I was getting delirious and began having trouble breathing.
Fortunately, a neighbor came by who said I had to go to hospital right now.
He was right.
I have been stung since then a few times and never came close to anaphylactic shock.
Clerk Uses Bug Spray on Would-Be Robber - Texas.”
Last Friday evening I was on the way home from a women’s group meeting at church in an adjacent town. Was stopped by one of the local wanna-be’s and given a ticket because my right rear tail light was burned out.
I had a can of wasp spray laying on the passenger seat and he asked what it was for so, thinking quickly, told him I had a wasp nest starting near my front door and I didn’t want to get stung so carried it with me when I walked from my car to the front door. He informed me it was illegal to use it on people in Texas and I suggested he might want to be sure about that before he tries to tell anyone else. Didn’t ask if I had a gun and/or permit and I didn’t volunteer. Guess he doesn’t think grannies carry.
When I was watching the news and the reporter related the story about the clerk using bug spray, she, too, stated that it was illegal to use it on humans. These folks need to get their facts right. Just because it doesn’t say so on the instructions for use, it is an effective deterrent.
You are a very naughty non-pc individual !
My guess is the original article was not in English and something was lost in the translation.
Yes I am, I try to pull no punches from reality
I am know in some circles as the “ice queen” and my heart is a frosty shard of frozen carbon chilled to absolute zero in a near bose-einstein condensate, ie coal...
I saw part of their act back in 1987 at Monsters of Rock/Donnington. I was possibly the most disgusting "entertainment" I have ever seen, complete with a mock human sacrifice. I wouldn't be so quick to repeat their claims of innocence
A quality shell has to be earned ! d;^)
I was pretty disgusting back then, too, but not very entertaining.
And yet another reason to NOT go to Saudi Arabia.
See what happens when you let these women go unescorted? If she wasn’t dresses so immodestly and provoking those creatures, she’d be alive today.
LOL, that’s what I was thinking. I don’t like movies like that, but I’d like to see that one, it’s just an interesting, clever concept.
There must not be any crime or criminals where you live.
Either that or there is no revenue in actual police work.
Those are some hard looking women.
There must not be any crime or criminals where you live.”
The area I was passing through is not known for having a crime or criminals. Particularly since I’m older, I’m very careful about where I drive, particularly at night.
This one just really made me angry though. It’s not like I am able to see while driving at night that my right rear tail light is burned out. Had appt scheduled the next morning to take my car in for the annual safety inspection so they would have found it and replaced it then. Cost me $150.00. Policeman didn’t even ask for my driver’s license or proof of insurance.
Did write down officer’s name and badge number and wrote a letter of complaint to the Chief of Police and also don’t drive that way any more.
