He probably thought he'd just defeat the baddie on his World of Warcraft game before phoning an ambulance.

Dangerous job!
Seriously, a tragic thing to happen.

Hi suzi This is a rare incident as I used to reside in
these areas ,
And last year herping where tigers and dugites abound I did not see any about and I was looking hard enough but I did
catch a rarity a python. then me mate tells me tigers are
all about on the local golf course. PS snake bite deaths
are a rarity even in a country with the worlds deadliest .
the only real dangerous reptiles are the Big estuarine
crocs up north that have killed a quite few people over the
years and sharks that have killed a lot of people in the
last few years.More chance of getting run down by a car
then all of this.AGILIS40521.3730902778
