More than 200 people die of 'Snakebites' around the world

More than 200 people around the world die due to snakebites. However, Thai firefighter Pinyo Pookpinyo was a lucky one. A King Cobra bit his thumb tip, and still he made it to Bangkok hospital within 15 minutes, where he was given a serum that stopped the venom from attacking his nervous system & can be fatal. Snakebites kill between 81000 & 138000 people & disable 400000 more every year.
